Open Enrolment

Open Enrolment is your annual opportunity to update your benefits coverage for the next plan (calendar) year. Open Enrolment is also the one opportunity each year where you can allocate flex credits to a Health Spending Account (HSA) for the upcoming year, should you wish to do so.

This year, Open Enrolment runs from October 22 to November 7, 2018. Any updates you make during Open Enrolment will come into effect on January 1, 2019 and will remain in effect until you update your coverage during the next Open Enrolment, or as a result of an eligible life event.

If you want to update your benefits coverage and/or allocate credits to an HSA, you must complete Open Enrolment.

New for Plan Year 2019

Effective January 1, 2019, annual premiums for Optional Employee Life Insurance and Optional Spouse Life Insurance will be adjusted slightly. The updated rate table can be found in the "2019 Flexible Benefits Guide" or the "Your Choices at a Glance" document.

Getting Ready

Updating Your Choices

Important: Be sure to submit your changes by following the prompts. Once you arrive at the "Submit Confirmation" page, you've completed Open Enrolment. You can now exit Employee Self Service.

  • If you don't have access to Employee Self Service, complete and mail a Flexible Benefits Program Enrolment/Change Form (DOCX, 67KB) to the Benefits Service Centre. The Benefits Service Centre must receive your change form before the open enrolment deadline. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time.

Confirming Your Choices

In early December, check your confirmation statement through Employee Self Service. Report any errors immediately (but no later than December 31 at 4:00 pm) to AskMyHR.
