Healthcare Open Enrollment Reminder

Open Enrollment for making insurance or benefit changes will be from October 26th through November 6th. If you are interested in making changes to your current insurance, you may do so at this time.

All employees will be required to complete a GRCC Election Form.

All elections made during Open Enrollment become effective January 1, 2010 and will remain in effect through December 31, 2010. The choices that you make during Open Enrollment cannot be changed again until next year’s Open Enrollment period, unless you experience certain family status changes during the year.

To assist you in making your benefit selection, GRCC will be mailing an Open Enrollment packet to your worksite. Additional benefit information will be posted on the GRCC website at:
