2018 Annual Benefits Enrollment

The 2018 annual benefits enrollment (ABE) period is October 2-27, 2017. During this time, you can make changes for next year, including switching health plans, coverage levels, or adding/deleting dependents. This is the only time during the year when you are eligible to make benefit plans changes to most plans unless you have a life event (e.g. family or employment change) that allows you to change your benefits.

Changes made during the ABE period will be effective January 1, 2018.

The UW System ABE webpage has information about benefit opportunities and changes for 2018. For information about current UW System benefits (2017), please visit the UW System employee benefits webpage.

You can view more information on the 2018 Health Plans and their provider directories on the ETF website

Introducing ALEX: Your personalized benefits counselor

ALEX announcement jelly

ALEX explains your benefit options in plain English and helps you choose the plans that make the most sense for you and your family.

In an effort to make the Annual Benefits Enrollment period less stressful for current employees, UW System is introducing this new online tool for anyone who wants a better understanding of the comprehensive benefits offered at the UW System.

ALEX will ask you a series of questions to walk you through benefits offerings and suggest appropriate plans based on your answers. It is UW System’s hope that a conversation with ALEX will educate you while helping you make sound, informed decisions about benefits.
