Additional Open Enrollment Resources

The following resources provide information to support your 2022 benefits open enrollment decision making.

  • ALEX, DePaul’s virtual benefits “counselor.”​ This online tool helps you to review options so that you get the most out of your benefits and use your money wisely. Note: ALEX helps you choose benefits, but ALEX doesn’t actually make any enrollment changes for you. You will still need to make your benefits elections through BlueSky.
  • DePaul's Virtual Health and Benefits Fair offers a self-guided virtual experience that takes you through rooms with tables that contain information from each of our vendors/partners.
