2017 Open Enrollment: Gemini Hilo

AURA Human Resources is pleased to announce our annual open enrollment period, November 7 - November 21, 2016. Changes are effective January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017.

The deadline to submit changes is November 21, 2016.

Hilo site specific open enrollment materials can be found on the right side menu bar.

Open Enrollment is a great opportunity to ask and learn about the many benefit plans offered by AURA. It is also your once-a-year opportunity to enroll in or make changes to your benefit plans. It is important to remind you that decisions made during Open Enrollment are generally binding for the entire year and cannot be changed until next year's Open Enrollment, unless you experience a qualifying event that allows for benefit changes during the year.  If this happens, you MUST notify the AURA Human Resources Department of such a change within 30 days of the qualifying event date.

This year, employees will be required to make their Open Enrollment elections online via Ultipro Employee Self-Service. The information will flow electronically to HR, where it will be approved and processed. There is one exception:

1) If you want to change your election to contribute to the 403(b), Tax Sheltered Annuity, the 2017 Salary Reduction Agreement Form is available in the Forms section on this webpage. Complete and submit to HR. If you want to enroll in the 403(b), contact HR.

Site specific webpages have been established for all AURA locations with important materials related to open enrollment. To access your customized webpage, hover over 2017 under the main 'Benefits' menu, then hover over '2017 Open Enrollment', then click on your location.

You get the most from your AURA benefits when you understand how the Program works. Plan to attend an open enrollment meeting where you will receive a highlights of how the plans work, your benefits choices, and the enrollment process.
