Benefits-eligible faculty and staff are reminded that the annual Benefits Enrollment period is now under way, and will end on Friday, Nov. 18. As in the past, benefits enrollment can be completed online through the Employee Self-Service Information Center (ESSIC), which can be accessed from the Office of Human Resources website or directly at https://essic.ohr.psu.edu/ online.
Employees are encouraged to carefully review their benefit needs for 2012 and make any appropriate changes regarding healthcare, dental and vision coverage, as well as enroll in the enhanced Flexible Spending Account program.
Employees who are not changing any benefits but who do want to participate in a Flexible Spending Account must log in to ESSIC and elect the flexible spending option and specify the amount of money to be deducted each pay period.
The final day for employees to enroll or make changes to their 2012 benefits will be Friday, Nov. 18. Changes will not be accepted after this date. For additional details on the 2012 employee benefits options, visit http://ohr.psu.edu/benefits/benefits-enrollment online.
