Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment begins on Oct. 11, 2022, at 8:30 a.m. and ends on Nov. 4, 2022, at 5 p.m. Any enrollments or changes made during Open Enrollment will become effective Jan. 1, 2023.

Required Actions

No action is required unless you want to change benefits or dependents or enroll in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) in 2023. With the exception of FSAs, current benefit choices roll over to 2023.

You Need To Take Action If …

  • You want to enroll for the first time, change plans, or change coverage levels for 2023.
  • You wish to participate or continue to participate in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) for 2023. The IRS requires all flexible spending account participants to re-enroll in these plans every year. If you wish to continue these plan(s), be sure to make your elections for 2023 by the Nov. 4 deadline.

SPS Workday to Enroll or Make Changes:

Employees who wish to enroll or make changes will need to log in to SPS Workday.

If you do not know your username (W#) or need help on how to enroll, please see our SPS Workday website which outlines where to find your username and how to enroll.

Review your benefits summary statement in SPS Workday for accuracy. It is your responsibility to correct any errors. 

If enrolling new dependents, it is important to upload required supporting documentation when completing Open Enrollment changes.
