 What is an Online Benefits Platform?

The Online Benefits Platform is a place where you can make open enrollment or qualifying life event changes. It replaces forms and provides a safe environment for you to upload documents, change life insurance beneficiaries, or just see what you currently have elected. The only benefits that are not managed through the online benefits platform are Retirement and Tuition Fee Waivers. Retirement changes and Fee Waivers will remain the same process.
