Your Open Enrollment Checklist

Your Open Enrollment Checklist

Before you go on Atlas...

When you go on Atlas during Open Enrollment…

  • Even if you aren't making changes, please verify that the information in Atlas is correct and that your address is up to date.
  • If you are changing health plans or adding family members, make the change and note your primary care provider choices for any family members you are adding.
  • If you are opting out of MIT health care plans, cancel your coverage.
  • Unless you change it, your medical, dental, and vision coverage will remain the same.
  • Open a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to set aside health care or dependent care expenses before taxes (you need to do this every year as it doesn't carry over).
  • Enroll in supplemental life insurance.
  • Enroll in dependent life insurance, available for spouse, domestic partner, and children.
  • Update your personal information such as ethnicity, race, gender, veteran, disability status, and emergency contact, as well as include the Social Security numbers of any dependents you cover, if available (this is now a federal requirement).
  • Consent to receive electronic W-2s only. If you consented last year, you don't need to do it again.

After you go on Atlas, don't forget…
