    Why do you have an article about open enrollment without telling when open enrollment is ??

      Thanks for pointing this out, Marc. I’ve added the dates above. The first link in this article goes to the UCnet article which provides details about this year’s Open Enrollment for all UC employees, including those at OP. We encourage staff to read the UCnet article and attend a webinar to hear all the Open Enrollment news for this year.
