Open Enrollment for medical, dental and vision is August 1 through September 4, 2020. Please visit the Open Enrollment webpage for more information. This is a passive open enrollment. Human Resources will automatically default you into the same plan that you are currently on with the same dependent/spouse coverage you have on your current plan.

This year all open enrollment meetings will be virtual. You can view a meeting on the STSIG website anytime or participate in a live Zoom meeting – that schedule is available here. Questions should be submitted to benefits@stsig.org prior to attending.
