The State of Colorado provides a wide range of benefit choices. New employees are must enroll in a plan within 31 days of their hire date. If a new employee is adding dependents, we must receive the dependent documentation within 31 days also. Once each year, thereafter, the State sponsors an Open Enrollment period which allows employees to make changes in existing coverage. Employees are also allowed to make changes for select qualifying mid-year life changes, such as birth, marriage, spousal employment changes,  please call your benefits department for more information. 

Benefit eligibility is based upon the position held, and may be attached to both full and part-time, qualifying positions. Follow the links below for additional information on the State’s benefits choices.  

FEATURED: FY 2014-15 Open Enrollment 
April 22 - May, 15, 2014

Open Enrollment is the time of year when state employees can enroll in, or change their medical, dental, optional life, optional long-term disability, healthcare FSA and dependent care FSA insurance selections and make changes necessary to ensure that their benefits choices continue to meet their needs.

This year's Open Enrollment does not require employees to make a medical or dental plan selection. Employees' current medical and dental plan choices will automatically roll over into the next plan year for those that do not make changes. However, employees must make new elections for flexible spending accounts (FSA) because their current FSA elections will not roll over into the next plan year.
