    Open Enrollment Details

    Open Enrollment for health benefits and flexible spending accounts (FSAs) is from May 1 - May 15, 2018!

    How Do I Make Changes?

    The state’s EmployeeDirect (eDirect) system is not available this year; therefore, all enrollments/changes must be made on a paper enrollment form.

    Please complete the State Active Employee Enrollment Form and return it to benefits:

    • If the form does not contain social security numbers, scan and email your form to
    • If the form does contain social security numbers, either fax it to 703-993-2601, send via interoffice mail to MS 3C3, or drop it off in the HR & Payroll office (4th floor Merten Hall).

    Please make sure to put your Mason email address on the form so we may send you a confirmation email.
