Benefits Enrollment

The benefits enrollment period occurs at the start of your employment with the university. Thereafter, all eligible employees have the opportunity to enroll in or make changes to their benefits if they experience a qualifying life event/family status change or during the Open Enrollment period each fall. Any changes made during the annual Open Enrollment period will become effective on January 1 of the following year.

New to DePaul?

Full-time staff have 31 days from date of hire to enroll in benefits. Coverage will be effective on the first day of the month following date of hire (or on the actual date of hire, if hired on the first of the month), provided all the enrollment requirements are completed. If you do not go into the system and elect to waive within 31 days of your hire date, you will be defaulted into the Consumer Driven Health Plan  (CDHP) for individual coverage.

New full-time faculty starting in the fall must complete the benefits enrollment within 31 days of Sept. 1. Coverage will be effective Sept. 1.
