Open Enrollment/Update your benefits


Open Enrollment for 2020 will occur from November 1 – 15, 2019. This is your annual opportunity to select the benefits that are right for you and your family for calendar year 2020. Beginning November 1, 2019, you will be able to add, change or remove coverage from your current benefit plans by visiting Workday at and entering your CNetID and CNet password. Any new elections and all changes will become effective January 1, 2020, and continue through December 31, 2020.


Contact Information

The Benefits Team will be sending out benefits information in a few weeks via US Mail. In preparation for these upcoming mailings, we ask that you review; and if needed, update your mailing address in Workday. Please ask your units to do the same.

Please reference the Contact Change Quick Reference Guide for instructions on how to update your mailing address (and other contact information).
