Open enrollment (OE)

Open enrollment (OE) is the period of time each year when employees can waive or enroll in coverage, change plans, and add or remove dependents. The only times you can make these changes are at open enrollment or if you experience a qualifying life event, so choose your plans carefully.

Check out our instructions to enroll in or waive coverage if you need help selecting your coverage.

Employers & admins: if your benefits are up for renewal, head to our renewal timeline for what to expect. For more guidance on preparing for renewal, check out our blog. If you want to start offering commuter benefits or new ancillary coverage (dental, vision, life, or disability), you can set these up in Gusto anytime.
