Annual Benefits Open Enrollment Closes on November 19, 2021
November 16, 2021
Annual Benefits Enrollment is ongoing through Friday, November 19, 2021. We encourage everyone to use the comparison tool available from the Your Benefits Resources (YBR) website to evaluate available options.
As we mentioned earlier this month, there are some key items that you need to be aware of as it pertains to this year’s Benefits Open Enrollment:
- You will default into a medical plan for 2022 as provided for in our Contract if you do not make an active election. So, be sure to look at all your available options and ensure you are picking a plan that is right for you and your family.
- Credits and surcharges on YBR will reset if you do not actively pick a plan during Annual Enrollment even if you had previously adjusted them. This year, you must certify eligibility for the wellness credit and to avoid the spousal surcharge.
- For those in San Francisco who are in the Kaiser Northern California plan that was previously provided at no cost, in the absence of an alternate election, you will remain in the Kaiser plan and will be charged the applicable premium.
For questions regarding open enrollment, you can contact the United Airlines Benefit Center at 1-(800)-651-1007 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Central Time, Monday-Friday.
