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.
  • If you are changing health plans or adding family members, make the change and note your primary care provider choices for you and any family members.
  • 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—it doesn't carry over).
  • Enroll in supplemental life insurance.
  • Update your personal information: education, ethnic origin, and emergency contact (this does not apply to Lincoln Laboratory employees). 
  • Consent to receive electronic W-2s only. If you consented last year, you don't need to take any action.
