Open Enrollment Guide for Plan Year 2021

 

Open enrollment begins Monday, November 2, 2020 and ends Tuesday, November 10, 2020. All changes made during this time period will be effective beginning January 1, 2021. This is your only opportunity to make changes to your benefits unless you experience a qualifying event prior to the open enrollment period in October of 2021 for the 2022 plan year.

Please refer to the guidelines below for what needs to be completed during open enrollment. All forms are located on the ENSUVT.ORG  website, Open Enrollment tab.  The Open Enrollment tab also features a small library of information for staff to utilize.

 

If you need help accessing a form, please ask for assistance printing the form from the website. You must turn your forms into central office NO LATER than TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2020.  Acceptable methods of document return: PDF (via email), USPS (postmarked no later than November 6th, 2020), dropbox at Canaan Town Office or ENSU tray in the office at Canaan Schools.
