Annual Benefits Enrollment


September 28–October 23, 2020
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, 2021. Certain benefits offered to UW–Madison employees require re-enrollment each year.

Information about changes to your benefits options for 2021 and the enrollment process will be available in fall 2020.
