Open Enrollment books en route to employees

Open Enrollment books begin delivery this week. All benefits-eligible faculty and staff will receive their books through campus mail in preparation for this year's Open Enrollment period, Oct. 18-29. Personal Enrollment Worksheets (PEW) will follow via U.S. mail to employee homes.

Open Enrollment books contain details and premium rates of the medical insurance and other benefit plans available to faculty and staff, including two new medical plans being offered in 2005. The Benefits Office encourages employees to carefully consider all of the plans and premium options available.

Elections and changes may be submitted by returning a completed PEW or using eBenefits through Wolverine Access to make 2005 benefit elections online. Open Enrollment books and PEWs will include instructions for both paper and online methods of enrollment.

For more Open Enrollment information:

• Visit the Benefits Office Web site at

• E-mail Benefits Office staff at

• Consult with HR/Payroll Service Center staff at 5-2000 (campus), (734) 615-2000 (local off-campus) or (866) 647-7657 (toll-free for off-campus, long-distance).

eBenefits Online Access

Like all Wolverine Access services, eBenefits requires a valid uniqname and UMICH (Kerberos) password. Employees who do not use their UMICH password regularly can verify that they know the correct password anytime by visiting http://wolverine and clicking "My Personal Information" under the "Faculty & Staff" heading. Users will be prompted for their uniqname and password. Employees who are unable to log in should contact Information Technology Central Services to have their password reset for access to these online services.
