Benefits Open Enrollment Period

Benefits Open Enrollment runs from October 26 through November 15. Elections made during this time period will take effect on January 1, 2006. On-line go to the Stanford Benefits website at To make Open Enrollment elections by phone call (877)905-2985.

Informational Meeting

An Open Enrollment Informational Meeting will take place at SLAC on Thursday, November 10, from 11:00 a.m. to Noon in the Orange Room (Central Lab, Bldg. 40, Rm. 140-150).

Beneficiary Re-Entry Required

Since there is a new benefits administration system in place, all beneficiary information must be re-entered. Whether or not you decide to make any changes to your benefits during Open Enrollment, you must go on-line and record your life insurance beneficiary. You can designate anyone as your beneficiary and can make changes at any time; only the most recent information will remain in your records. If you do not have computer access, you can submit beneficiary data by calling (877)905-2985.

If you plan on using a Flexible Spending Account for Health Care or Dependent Care, you must re-enroll for 2006 since this benefit does not automatically rollover to the next plan year. Also, if you have been approved for a Child Care Subsidy Grant for 2006, you must go on-line or call (877)905-2985 to accept your grant during the Open Enrollment period.
