Summer Enrollment has concluded. If you made changes, you should have received a benefits confirmation email from ERS. The subject line of this email will read Confirmation of Plan Year 2021 Benefit Elections. Please take a moment to review your benefits confirmation to ensure proper enrollment. Please note, if you did not have an email address assigned to your ERS account at the time you completed enrollment, you will receive your benefits confirmation via US mail.

In the event of any enrollment error, the Benefits team has an opportunity to make corrections to your Plan Year 2021 elections during the timeframe of July 27-October 15. Once this period has passed, allowed changes to plan year 2021, which begins September 1, can only be made with a qualifying life event or Summer Enrollment 2021. Employees who forgot to make changes during enrollment will not be able to use the correction period to make changes.

Contact HR Benefits at 1-855-878-7650 (option 2) or email us at if you believe an enrollment correction is needed.
