This year's Annual Enrollment for active County employees will take place September 14 - October 2.  Annual Enrollment for retired County employees will take place October 5 - October 23, 2015.

During Open Enrollment, you can:

You will receive more information about Annual Enrollment, your election options and costs in early September.  This information is mailed to you at your current mailing address on file.  If you've moved or you are planning to move, please make sure to update your mailing address.  If you are an active employee please update your address through your department representative.  Retired employees should notify the Benefit team with address corrections.
