PEBB Benefit Open Enrollment Corrections

Now that Open Enrollment is over and the new plan year has begun, it is time to verify that your benefit elections have been processed and are reflected correctly on your Earnings Statement. Employees have until February 28, 2014 to make changes to their Open Enrollment elections and/or correct a processing error. Review your 2014 benefit elections and verify against your December 31, 2013 and January 31, 2014 Earnings Statement. If you identify any discrepancies, you will need to make an Open Enrollment correction. For additional information on Open Enrollment Corrections, how to review and verify, process, and deadlines, please visit OSU Employee Benefits Open Enrollment Corrections website.
