No action is required unless you want to change benefits or dependents or enroll in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) in 2020. With the exception of FSAs, current benefit choices roll over to 2020.

You Need To Take Action If …

  • You want to enroll for the first time, change plans, or change coverage levels for 2020.
