Open Enrollment Ends Friday, Nov. 6
Employee Benefits Open Enrollment is ending in two days—at 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 6. Now is the time to make changes to your benefits and enroll in a medical and/or dependent care flexible spending account (FSA) if you intend to do so for 2021.
Find what you need by visiting the Employee and Retiree Service Center’s Open Enrollment web page. There you will find links to the information you need to make the decisions that are right for you and your family. Then, if you are making changes to your benefits or enrolling in an FSA, visit the Employee Self-Service (ESS) web page and click on Open Enrollment to access the Benefits Enrollment System (BES).
Don’t forget! Enroll in your 2021 medical and/or dependent care FSA by 8 p.m. on Nov. 6. You will receive confirmation of your new elections within minutes. Even if you are enrolled in an FSA for 2020, you must re-enroll for 2021 if you wish to continue your participation.
Submit your benefits changes soon
The BES experiences very heavy volume during the final days of Open Enrollment. As a result, you may experience a slower connection. Please log in to the system as soon as possible.
What happens after I submit my changes?
You will receive a benefits confirmation statement of your changes while still logged in to the system. You also will receive confirmation in your MCPS Outlook email account.
All changes submitted during Open Enrollment will take effect on January 1, 2021.
