The State of Florida conducts an annual open enrollment period to give salaried employees an opportunity to review and/or make changes to pre-tax benefits in the absence of special circumstances called qualifying status change events.
This open enrollment period is held annually during the fall and all changes go in effect January 1st of the following year. People First (Northgate Arinso) sends out information and a benefit confirmation prior to open enrollment to advise each employee of their benefits enrollment for the year.
If the benefits confirmation received from People First is incorrect, contact the University of West Florida Human Resources' Benefits Office. The information from People First will include a personal identification number (PIN) that will allow you to make changes online through the People First website.
If you need assistance making changes online or would like to request a paper form to make your changes, please attend an Open Enrollment Assistance session offered by the Benefits Office, or call Adrian Rowley at 474-2604 firstname.lastname@example.org or Jeff Comeau at 474-2610 email@example.com to schedule an appointment prior to the end of open enrollment.
Additions or changes made during open enrollment will not be on file with the provider companies until January 1st. If you want to keep your current benefit elections for the next calendar year, you do not have to do anything except if you want to participate in a flexible spending account.
Open Enrollment for 2013 additions, changes and deletions of insurance benefits will begin Monday, October 8, 2012 and will end Friday, November 2, 2012.
