2021 Benefit Open Enrollment

The 2021 Open Enrollment period begins Monday, November 2, 2020 and ends on Friday, November 20, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. PST.  This year, Open Enrollment is PASSIVE.  Due to COVID-19, we are using a “passive” open enrollment process to ensure you don’t lose your existing coverage (provided you remain eligible for benefits).

Therefore, you must login to Workday ONLY if you wish to change your benefits elections in 2021.  If you take NO ACTION, your current benefits will carry over for 2021.  

Participants in the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) must re-enroll during open enrollment, as current year elections will NOT carry over.

All benefit elections are effective January 1, 2021.  The benefits you elect during Open Enrollment will remain in effect through December 31, 2021, unless you experience a qualifying life event that would allow you to make a mid-year change.

For one-on-one enrollment assistance, the Human Resource Staff will be available during open enrollment from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. You can reach us by email at hr@hmc.edu to schedule a personal appointment.
