The Open Enrollment period for the State Health Benefits Program (SHBP), and the State Employees Tax Savings Program (Tax$ave) is expected to begin October 2, 2017, and conclude on October 31, 2017.  This is your annual opportunity to revise your health, dental and prescription drug coverage, as well as pre-tax flexible spending account selections.  Changes made during this time will become effective January 1, 2018.  Please visit the University Human Resources (UHR) website, http://uhr.rutgers.edu, closer to October for detailed information on open enrollment.

As in previous years, UHR will be hosting a series of Open Enrollment Benefits Fairs throughout the month of October to educate employees about their SHBP benefits options, as well as other benefits and services which are available to them.  Please make sure to save the date for the following open enrollment fairs:
