    9-Month Faculty Open Enrollment Changes

    Nine-month faculty who made changes during the Open Enrollment period in May 2018 may see adjustments to their first fall paycheck on September 14, 2018.


  • To ensure there was no interruption to nine-month faculty health benefits from June-August 2018, the Benefits Office double deducted health insurance premiums from March-May 2018.
  • However, this process did not account for any Open Enrollment changes (such as new plan selection, addition/removal of family members, or premium rewards) that may have taken effect when the new plan year began on July 1, 2018
  • The Benefits Office is now making adjustments to reflect the coverage that was in effect during July and August.
