Elections made during Open Enrollment are effective on Jan. 1 of the following year. Outside the annual Open Enrollment period, employees may only make changes to their benefits elections within 60 days of a Qualifying Status Change (QSC) event.

2019 Open Enrollment ends Nov. 2 at 6 p.m. ET. We encourage you to make your elections early in case you need assistance from the People First Service Center.

To learn what’s new this year, or make changes:

The State of Florida manages our state benefits, and they do not offer an extension when a deadline is missed for Open Enrollment. Employees will have to wait until the next year’s Open Enrollment period unless they have a Qualifying Status Change (QSC) event.
