Open Enrollment 2024 is now open! As previously announced, Open Enrollment for your 2024 benefit elections is Wednesday, November 1, through Wednesday, November 15, 2023. This is your annual opportunity to make changes to your benefits for yourself and your family, which will be effective January 1, 2024.  After Open Enrollment, any changes will have to wait until next year’s open enrollment, unless you have a Qualifying Life Event such as marriage, birth, or loss of coverage.


Below is important information about your 2024 benefits to help guide you through this year’s enrollment process. Please review these details about the benefits plans and the steps you need to take to complete open enrollment.

Workday Action Is Required If You Want To:

  • Add, drop, or change medical and/or life insurance
  • Add or drop dependent coverage
    • When enrolling a dependent for the first time, you will be required to provide documentation of relationship (such as a birth certificate for a dependent child, marriage certificate for a spouse, etc.)
  • Waive medical coverage and receive the $46.15 per pay period health care waiver credit ($1,200 annual max).

If you are a full-time employee currently receiving the $46.15 per pay period Health Care Waiver Credit from The Met, you must re-certify and provide proof of other coverage for you and your tax dependents.  Re-certification must be recorded in Workday and a copy of your health insurance id card uploaded every year.


Please see page 21 of the Open Enrollment Job Aid for detailed instruction how to do enroll in the waiver credit plan here.


  •  Enroll or re-enroll in the Health and/or Dependent Care FSA (even if you elected it for 2023)
    • The IRS has not released the Flexible Spending Account Limits for 2024. The limits will be updated in Workday and on our Open Enrollment page on the Intranet as soon as is practicable once they become available.
    • For 2023, the contribution limit is $3,050 for the Healthcare FSA and $5,000 for the Dependent Care FSA.
    • FSA funds are typically “use it or lose it”
    • For the healthcare FSA, the amount you elect is available in your account up front. No unused roll over will be available into calendar year 2024 beyond the limited max allowed by the IRS ($610). The IRS has not released the rollover limit for 2025.
    • For questions regarding your existing Health and or Dependent Care FSA account or balance, you can obtain your account details at or by calling 888-678-3457.

Even if you choose not to participate in the Health Care FSA, Dependent Care FSA, or receive the waiver credit for 2024, we encourage all employees to log in to their Workday accounts and review their current benefit elections and personal information (i.e. contact info, covered dependent information, beneficiaries) during Open Enrollment.
