Open Enrollment will be held October 25 through November 5, 2021. Open Enrollment is the annual period to make elections and changes to benefits for the upcoming 2022 calendar year. Changes made during Open Enrollment take effect Janaury 1, 2022.
The annual Benefits Fair will remain virtual this year. You will have the opportunity to learn about and receive answers about your benefits in a Q&A session with the benefits team in Human Resources. The medical vendors, Aetna & Kaiser will also be presenting about benefits available in 2022. Webinar information, additional benefit information and educational materials will become available on our Benefit Fair webpage.
The university provides a comprehensive set of benefits for eligible faculty/staff and their families. Certain benefits are automatically provided with the university covering 100% of the benefit cost. Many of the insurance benefits (medical, dental, supplemental life insurance and more) are optional to you and require that you complete an enrollment and often contribute toward the benefit's premium cost.
You can contact the Seattle University Benefits Center at 866-930-0464 if you need log-in support or help with your elections.
