Benefits Open Enrollment: Keep Current. Stay Current.

Open Enrollment for 2020 benefits will take place Oct. 14 through Nov. 1. During Open Enrollment, employees may elect or change state and UF benefits plans through the appropriate online portals. Changes made are effective Jan. 1, 2020.

Here are a few ways you can prepare for Open Enrollment:

Review and update your People First and UF mailing address information by Sept. 30 to ensure timely delivery of Open Enrollment materials. Faculty and staff can now update their addresses, contact information, emergency contact information and more directly through ONE.UF. (Please note: This is a recent change.) Learn more about address verification in People First here.

Explore your 2020 benefits options with ALEX, UF’s online virtual benefits counselor. ALEX is available 24/7 and can help you find the benefits that best suit your needs. 

Review information on the state’s myBenefits and UFHR Benefits websites for insurance plan details, enrollment information and more.

Have your People First ID (PFID) and password ready. To locate your PFID, log onto the myUFL portal and navigate to: Main Menu > My Self Service > Benefits > PFID & Beneficiary Info. People First passwords expire every 90 days. To reset yours, log onto the People First website and follow the “Forgot Your Password” instructions. For further assistance, call 1-866-663-4735.

Keep an eye out for Open Enrollment packets from People First arriving by mail in mid-October, emails from UFHR Benefits and additional UF at Work articles. Be sure to read all materials promptly and carefully.

Attend the Employee Benefits & Wellness Fair on Oct. 28! Mark your calendars and plan to stop by the Champion’s Club at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for the Employee Benefits & Wellness Fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 28. The fair is a great opportunity to learn more about available benefits plans and retirement options, and to participate in wellness screenings. Flu shots will also be available to employees providing their Gator 1 card and valid insurance ID card. Residents outside of Alachua County may attend a state benefits fair in their local area; however, UFSelect and GatorCare vendors will only be participating in the UF fair. Check the DMS website for locations and dates of alternate benefits fairs.

Contact UFHR Benefits with any questions by emailing or calling (352) 273-2840.
