The implementation of Banner requires that dates for some annual MCC processes be moved up on the calendar. Please review the following items related to Open Enrollment.
Open Enrollment dates moved to November 15, 2004
Due to HR Banner implementation on January 1, 2005, Human Resources and Payroll have established November 15, 2004 as the deadline for submission of changes to 2005 health/dental insurance plans, flexible spending accounts and tax shelter annuity deductions. The earlier deadline is necessary to provide appropriate processing time for the first payroll in January.
To help with questions and changes in the health insurance, representatives from College insurance providers will be available in October. Flexible Spending Account help will also be available. After November 15, 2004 no changes will be accepted.
Additionally, if you wish to amend your 2004 Tax Shelter deductions, change forms must be received by the deadline date. All changes not received by November 15 will not be processed in January. If there are no changes, 2004 deductions will remain in effect. If appropriate, other changes to TSA amounts may be made in February.
Please be assured that your attention and cooperation in this important matter is appreciated. For additional information, questions may be referred to the Human Resources department.
