Getting Prepared for Benefits Summer Enrollment

The Benefits Summer Enrollment timeline has changed. This year, SFA employees can make benefit election changes between the dates of July 9-22. Note that this is a 2-week window to make election changes. This is shorter than we have had in the past. Please save these dates to your calendar so you can make changes if you choose. Changes made during summer enrollment will go into effect September 1, 2017.

ERS will start mailing personal benefits enrollment statements on June 12th. Please confirm your permanent address is correct to ensure you receive your benefits statement.

Human Resources will continue providing updates when additional Summer Enrollment information becomes available.
