The annual enrollment season will run from Monday, October 18 through Friday, November 5, 2021.
Completing Annual Enrollment Elections
Online Member Self Service (MSS) - Preferred Method
Employees should complete the annual enrollment benefit elections online through Member Self Service (MSS) starting Monday, October 18 through Friday, November 5. The only application that must always be printed, signed, and submitted by members to their HR or Payroll Departments is the Voya Life Insurance Evidence of Insurability.
Paper Applications - Forward to NDPERS at least weekly
Employers must mail printed forms directly to NDPERS at least weekly. This process applies to printed Evidence of Insurability (EOI) forms.
Employees must use the most current forms. We are unable to accept old versions of forms. All paper applications must be dated by the employee on or before November 5, 2021. NDPERS must receive all forms from the employer no later than November 12.
New hires during Annual Enrollment
When assisting your new hires with plan enrollments through Member Self Service (MSS), advise them to enroll in their NDPERS benefit plans as a new hire through the “NDPERS Plans” option and NOT through the “Annual Enrollment” option. This will ensure they’ve completed their benefit elections for the remainder of the 2021 calendar year before they make their elections for the 2022.
After they complete the “NDPERS Plans” enrollment, they can utilize the "Annual Enrollment" option to make changes to their benefits as needed for the upcoming plan year.
