Benefits enrollment deadline extended for VSP (to 11/9) and Delta Dental supplemental (to 12/28)

Although the Annual Benefits Enrollment (ABE) period has closed for the year, we are contacting all ABE-eligible employees to let them know that the Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) has extended the enrollment deadline for VSP vision insurance and Delta Dental supplemental dental insurance.

If you have not already enrolled in either VSP or Delta Dental and would like to take advantage of either of these extended enrollment opportunities you will need to complete and submit a paper application to your human resources office.  Self Service will not be available for these enrollments.
