Welcome to the DePaul University guide to 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 each November during the Open Enrollment period. Any changes made during the November Open Enrollment period will become effective on January 1 of the following year. View the 2020 Benefits Overview and Enrollment Guide.

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.

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.
