A completed 2019 Enrollment and Change Form , along with your Statement of Benefits Form is due in Risk Management within 31 days of your employment date. This is very important--so please don't forget! If you are late, you will have to wait until the next Annual Enrollment (mid-October) to apply for your benefits for the new year.
