Open enrollment period for benefits ends May 16

The open enrollment period for University of Alaska benefits began April 15 and will end Friday, May 16.

In an effort to trim costs and reduce waste, the university will not mail packets home to employees. A letter on blue paper was mailed with information about plan changes, updates and how to enroll. Review the information online and print only the needed forms.

All the information and forms are on the benefits website at

Turn in paperwork to regional human resources offices by the deadline, May 16, for coverage beginning July 1, 2014.
