Medical Reimbursement Plan    Life     HIPAA Policy 


  • Employees are required to submit their benefit paperwork to HR during their new hire orientation. 

  • An employee becomes eligible for benefits on the first (1st) of the month following thirty (30) days of employment. 

  • Once you become eligible to receive benefits, you have 30 days before  your date of eligibility to submit your paperwork.  If your paperwork is not in the Human Resources office on time, you will forfeit your benefit option until the next open enrollment period.

  • Each year the University conducts an open enrollment period which allows you the opportunity to make changes to your Health, Dental, and Medical and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts.  This is also your opportunity to enroll in any of the voluntary insurance programs we offer such as vision and voluntary life. 


    State and Federal regulations require that you submit a new 'enrollment form' each year, even if you wish to keep your benefit elections EXACTLY the same.  If you do not complete the appropriate paperwork by the end of open enrollment, your deduction will not continue into the next calendar year.


  • IRS regulations stipulate that current employees cannot elect to change or join Franklin Pierce University’s health, dental, vision or flexible spending during the calendar year, other than during an open enrollment period, unless there is qualifying event, such as marriage, birth/adoption of a child or loss of spouse’s coverage.
