Benefits To-Dos in 2021

As the 2021 calendar year begins, here are two actions to take regarding your DePaul benefits.

1) Sign Up for the 2021 Wellness Program.

DePaul is excited to announce that we have partnered with WellRight for the university’s 2021 Wellness ProgramIn January 2021, benefit-eligible employees will be receiving an email from WellRight with instructions to activate your account through the WellRight portal.

All active full-time and part-time, benefits-eligible faculty and staff enrolled in one of DePaul’s medical plans (PPO, CDHP, HMOIL), as well as COBRA participants are eligible to earn a $300 incentive credit toward their 2022 medical plan premiums if they register and complete activities for the 2021 Wellness Program. This premium incentive is available to eligible faculty and staff who are enrolled in a DePaul medical plan as the primary subscriber.

2) Make a Plan to Use Your Flexible Spending Account Balance.

If you have a flexible spending account (Dependent Care FSA or Health Care FSA), now is the time to plan how you will use any money you have in your account over the next several months.  Because our plan has a grace period, you can incur claims for your 2020 balance(s) until March 15, 2021, and submit those claims to HealthEquity by March 31, 2021.  Any unused balance in your FSA from 2020 is subject to forfeiture if not incurred by March 15, and submitted by March 31.  Click here for details about flexible spending accounts.
