To participate in the PSU benefits package, opt out or decline coverage, employees must make enrollment decisions within certain time frames depending on whether you are newly hired; making a qualified status change (QSC) or making an Open Enrollment election. If you retire officially and lose your active benefit coverage, you may have access to a retiree plan, and if you become ineligible for benefits, you may continue coverage under COBRA.
There are specific criteria and procedures for enrolling and/or making changes to your medical, dental, life, disability, and/or flexible spending accounts. These are discussed on the PEBB website. The following links will help guide you to the pages discussing enrollment and/or changes to benefits:
