Annual Open Enrollment

September 21 - October 16 , 2020 by 12 noon

Benefits Open Enrollment forms can only be accepted between Monday, September 21 through Friday, October 16, 2020 by noon.

Ready, Set, Enroll

Open enrollment is your once-a-year opportunity to evaluate and make necessary changes to your benefit programs. It is an opportune time to view health costs and plan changes and decide what best fits your needs. If you do nothing, your medical, dental, and vision enrollment will continue into the 2021 plan year.

What You Need to Review

Required Documents

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are requesting that all Benefits Enrollment/Change Forms (PDF) to be submitted to benefits@csuchico.edu via a scanned document. Please do not submit any documents with Social Security numbers on them, as e-mail is not secure.

If you are making a plan change only, there is no need to submit marriage/birth certificates with the Benefits Change Form, as we already have these documents on file. Please be sure to list everyone on your plan in Section F to make sure no one is excluded from the plan.
