1) Health Benefits/Open Enrollment: Last Saturday, NBOE finally updated the Employee Health Benefits Portal. Check your email for the site and login info.
You will be able to find information on the various options for Health and Dental Plans and other services offered through our Benefits packages. If you would like to see what your contribution cost will look like starting in January, you need to access the Chapter 78 tab.
Reminder! All staff who are currently on the Aetna 2020 plan will automatically be moved to a lower copay plan ($10 for generalists, $15 for specialists). There are still higher copay plans available for staff who want to pay lower premiums. Each family’s situation is unique.
How do I change my benefits online? How do I sign up for Flexible Spending Accounts?
You can complete your Open Enrollment application online via the following link https://newark.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eQK8S9Bt1mRoK6p . If you would like to set up a Flexible Spending Account without making any other changes to your benefits, just click “No, I would not like to make changes to my current plan for 2020.” And follow the prompts.
The Office of Benefit Services is open during the week until 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We also have Saturday hours from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Open Enrollment officially ends at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.
2) Earned MA/PhD Guides – October 31 is the deadline for staff who want to be placed on the Earned MA/PhD guides retroactive for this school year (see below communication from NBOE) . Anyone who puts in their paperwork after the deadline and before December 1 will be moved effective January 2020.
