Enrollment Process

The COVID-19 pandemic has required us to rethink our approach to Open Enrollment, which includes the following changes:  
  • There will be no informational meetings, benefits fairs, or in-person enrollments.
  • Distribution of hard copies of open enrollment materials will be limited to those mailed home with the memo dated August 27, 2020.
  • The Benefits Guide will be available online only.
  • Open Enrollment will be entirely online through our benefits portal (PlanSource). 

If you have questions or need assistance making changes, we are still here to serve you.  However, in order to protect both you and our staff members, please do not visit the Human Resources Department.  Our office is currently closed to visitors.  We would kindly request that you only contact us by phone or email.  Please utilize the contacts outlined below for benefits-related questions and/or assistance.
