Around mid-September, you will also receive a letter in the mail with a snapshot of your current benefits, an enrollment form and a beneficiary form.
When you receive this letter, please review your current benefit elections enclosed with this letter very carefully as well as the online Open Enrollment guide. This is your once-a-year opportunity to make changes to your benefits unless you have an eligible change in status.
The only change on our retiree plans is a small increase in our Medicare Advantage plan. This plan still remains our most affordable option for retirees. Please review rate sheet within the Open Enrollment Guide for 2024 rates.
