It's Option Transfer time!

We have been notified by the Orange County Office of Risk Management that this year's annual transfer option period will be October 6, 2014 through November 7, 2014. All changes must be submitted to Human Resources before the enrollment deadline of November 7, 2014.

This is the time you may make changes to your current health, dental and vision plans (individual to family or family to individual), enroll or re-enroll in the flexible spending plan, enroll in the medical buyout and enroll in the supplemental insurance (AFLAC). *NOTE* If you are currently enrolled in the flexible spending plan, to continue coverage you must re-enroll for 2015.  In support of the College’s sustainability efforts, we will not be mailing copies. To view the changes, download the Option Transfer packet.

If you need to change any of your coverages, please visit our forms page.
