If you miss this 30 day deadline to enroll, you must wait until the next annual Open Enrollment Period, normally held in November for a January 1st effective date.
The following information is to assist you in understanding the health benefits offered to you as an employee of RUSD. Outlined below are specific and limited times when you are authorized to enroll or add your
eligible dependents to your health and/or dental plans:
30 calendar days of the date you are hired and are eligible for benefits.
30 calendar days of a marriage, birth, adoption, or court-awarded legal
guardianship, or filing of registered domestic partnership.
30 calendar day of the loss of other coverage at any time during the year.

Benefit Enrollment is a 2 step process. First, you are required to attend a Benefits Orientation, even if you intend to waive coverage. Second, you are required to meet with a representative for a one-on-one appointment to enroll in your health and welfare benefit plans.
To begin the Benefit Enrollment process, you MUST contact your Employee Benefits Assistant to schedule a Benefit Orientation (typically held every Wednesday around the 3pm hour. Dates and times subject to change).
