2020 Open Enrollment

When and How to enroll

November 5-22, 2019

  1. Starting Nov. 5, you can log on to the Employee Benefits System.
  2. Go to my.creighton.edu/ click the Employee icon, enter your NetID and Blue password for single sign-on access.
  3. Once in the system, choose the Annual Enrollment event and get started.
  4. If you'd prefer, call the Solution Center at 866.903.8216 to make your elections. They are available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. CST.
  5. Your elections must be entered and confirmed by 4:30 p.m. CST on Nov. 22. After this deadline, no changes will be accepted unless you have a qualifying event.

What do I need to do?

  • Some 2019 plan elections--like medical, dental and vision--will roll over automatically. If you want to change plans or need to change the dependents who are covered under your plan, now is the time!
  • Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) do not roll over, so if you want money in a health, dependent care (for child care), or limited purpose (for CCAP participant's dental and vision expenses) FSA in 2020, you MUST make an election now.
  • If you contributed to an HSA in 2019, your elections will roll over. If you want to change or increase what goes into your HSA in 2020, log on to enter the new amount. Remember to count what Creighton contributes when calculating your annual amount to ensure you don't exceed the IRS maximum.
  • Review your beneficiaries. Having both a primary (e.g., a spouse) and contingent beneficiary is best. Besides life insurance, check to make sure your retirement plan designations are also up to date at Principal and/or TIAA.
  • If you need a will or trust, now is the time to sign up for MetLaw.
  • Review your retirement account to make sure you are on track for meeting your retirement savings goals.

2020 Vision Employee Premiums and Employer Contributions

Short & Long-Term Disability Coverage

The cost for short-term disability is employee paid and all employees are automatically enrolled. If you wish to opt out, you must select 'decline coverage' during Open Enrollment. Since the plan is an after-tax benefit, you can opt out at any time. Cost for long-term disability coverage through Mutual of Omaha is 100% employer paid.

Voluntary Life for Employee, Spouse, and Dependents

During Open Enrollment, if you're currently enrolled in Voluntary Term Life and your election is below the guarantee issue amount ($150,000 for employees and $50,000 for spouse), you or your spouse can increase your coverage by one level, without underwriting. For example, if you currently have $120,000 Voluntary Term Life coverage, you can increase your coverage by $10,000 to $130,000. Spousal coverage increases in $5,000 increments, so you could move them from $30,000 to $35,000 during Open Enrollment.

If you are applying for more coverage, you will be asked to complete the Evidence of Insurability Form below. Please retain a copy for your records.
