Employees should review coverage in preparation for benefits open enrollment in October

Mississippi State University faculty and staff should review their existing coverage in preparation for benefits open enrollment during the month of October.

You may review your current coverage and deductions in your MyState account. The HRM website provides an overview of benefits. You may access our website at https://www.hrm.msstate.edu/benefits.

Open enrollment is for the election of new coverage and changing or dropping existing coverage. The appropriate form(s) must be completed and submitted to your Benefits Specialist no later than Friday, October 29, 2021. If you do not want to add additional coverage or make changes to your existing coverage, no further action is required for your benefits to continue in 2022.
