Open Enrollment for choosing or changing Benefits will take place from November 1st through November 30th. Those benefit changes will take effect on January 1, 2024. You will receive an inbox item to complete the Open Enrollment process in Workday. If you miss the Open Enrollment window, the only way to change your benefit elections is through a Qualifying Life Event.

Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment will take place from November 1st through November 30 and changes/elections will go into effect on January 1st 2024.

  • You will receive a notice in your Workday inbox with a “task” that will say “Open Enrollment”.
  • Don’t forget that if you elect the Flex Account (FSA) you have to re-elect it every year to continue participating.
  • If you take the Medical Cash Out for not taking the Vassar sponsored medical coverage, you will need to re-elect that as well.

Did you have a baby this year? Get married? Move?

  • This is also a great time to review your mailing address and/or who is listed as a beneficiary on any life insurance plans you may have.
  • The end of year is not that far away and you want to make sure we have your current address for those end of year documents such as the W2.
