Open Enrollment Continues
Open Enrollment runs through Friday, November 12, at 5 PM Pacific time. This is the annual opportunity for participants to make changes to their Scripps Research benefit selections and, if eligible, enroll (or re-enroll) in the healthcare and/or dependent care spending accounts for the 2005 Plan Year. Instructions on how to access the online system are being mailed to participant homes and should be received by Tuesday, October 26.

While most changes or updates can be done through the online system, certain enrollments such as for Supplemental Life or Long Term Care require a paper application be completed and sent. Therefore, we urge all participants to plan accordingly and log on early to allow time to complete all paper applications if necessary.

Kiosks are available in Human Resources for employees who DO NOT have computer access. Participants with questions regarding Open Enrollment should contact Human Resources at the Benefits Line, x4-8487 or benefits@scripps.edu.
