Announcements & News
Open Enrollment - Saturday, October 23rd through Sunday, October 31st.
Learn more about all the changes and enroll or make changes by visiting our benefits showcase:
Heads-up! Open Enrollment is a shorter period this year so mark your calendars!
This year will be a passive enrollment. If you want to keep your benefits the same as you currently have today, then you do not have to do anything during Open Enrollment. We will roll these benefits over to 2022 - this includes your current-year Flexible Spending Account elections!
A few things to note on FSA accounts:
- 2021 FSA account balances (any remaining amount) will roll over to 2022 due to the Cares Act.
- 2022 FSA account balances will change back to the use-or-lose-it rule for FSA dependent care and the FSA Healthcare account. It will revert back to a $550 rollover maximum to 2023.
If you know you will be needing to make changes to your Benefits with the City, mark your calendars for our Open Enrollment period. Open Enrollment elections will be open in Employee Self Service (ESS) between 10/23/2021 - 10/31/2021 for employees to submit their changes online.
