Benefits is starting the more in-depth phase of communications for Open Enrollment to active and retired employees of LANL. We've got letters in the mail, some newspaper ads, New Dimensions article etc. all in the works or on the way. Here is a copy of the summary of what's happening, in case you think your readership would be interested in this information. From a "benefit dude" perspective, this is pretty unprecedented good news in this modern era of increased health care costs etc. - no rate increases in Medical or Dental rates for actives or retirees, a new Life and Disability vendor with substantially better service and much lower rates for most employees, a new Vision offering for retirees (just like UC's recent offering, but slightly cheaper)... not too shabby!
The LANL Open Enrollment Web page should be up and running later this month also.
As always, thanks for your time and for maintaining a presence out in the blogosphere.
Thanks Greg! I'm sorry I couldn't post this a week ago when you sent it. No deadlines have passed so hopefully no harm done. Please send a link to the LANL Open Enrollment web page when it's available. The information for retirees you sent is available for download here.
