Annual Benefits Enrollment


September 30–October 25, 2019
Annual Benefits Enrollment is the only time you can make changes to certain benefits without having an eligible life event (for example, marriage, birth, or divorce) or qualifying employment change during the year. Changes made during this period will be effective January 1, 2020. Certain benefits offered to UW–Madison employees require re-enrollment each year.

Information about changes to your benefits options for 2020 and the enrollment process can be found on the 2020 Annual Benefits Enrollment website provided by the University of Wisconsin System.

Benefits Seminars with Questions and Answers

Benefits seminars were held in early October, 2019. If you were unable to attend a seminar in person, you may watch a recorded online benefits seminar.
