Benefits Open Enrollment starts on Oct. 23, for you to choose your benefits for 2024. To prepare you for Open Enrollment, review the Open Enrollment checklist and events. More details about plan updates, rates, and other resources will be shared in early October.


Get Ready for Open Enrollment 

Open Enrollment is the ideal time to learn about what’s changing with your benefits and update your personal information, so you don’t miss out on receiving important benefits updates.

Here are two things you should do to prepare to enroll in benefits.

  • Update your personal information with the University HR Service Team at 877-905-2985 by Oct. 3. Be sure to provide your email address.
  • If you are enrolling a new dependent, you will need to provide their legal name, date of birth, and Social Security number and upload certification documentation, such as a birth certificate or marriage certificate, to My Benefits. Be sure to complete all enrollment steps through the confirmation page to ensure your dependent has been successfully added.

Attend an Open Enrollment Event

Learn about the upcoming plan changes and get your questions answered by attending:

  • A virtual Town Hall for an overview of Open Enrollment and your benefits options. The one-hour session includes a Q&A with the Stanford Benefits team. 
  • An in-person Open Enrollment Fair to talk to the Benefits team and vendors.
