Between October 18 and 29, follow these steps to enroll in 2022 benefits online:

  1. Go to and search for “Employee Center”
  2. Select and log in to the Employee Center task
  3. Select the Open Enrollment tile
  4. Review the Welcome screen then click Next in the upper right-hand corner to proceed to the Benefits Enrollment screen
  5. On the Benefits Enrollment screen you’ll see the following:
    • Enrollment Summary section which lists your per-pay-period cost of the benefits you have selected, as well as buttons to review and submit your elections.
    • Benefit Plans section which lists all of the benefits you are eligible to enroll in, or make changes to, during Open Enrollment. Select the icons directly under the heading to switch between a tile or list view.
  6. Select each benefit tile one at a time to review your election, enroll, or make plan changes. For each plan, click the Done button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen when you are done selecting your coverage to return to the Benefits Enrollment screen.
    • Medical: You can add, change, or drop coverage as well as dependents.
      • Remember to sign the Tobacco-free Affidavit at the bottom of the medical page for yourself and your spouse. You must sign it each year to get the premium reduction.
    • Health Savings Account (HSA): If you enroll in a high deductible health plan (HDHP), review and update your annual HSA election.
    • Dental: You can add, change, or drop coverage as well as dependents.
    • Flexible Spending Accounts (formerly known as TSB): Enter your annual Healthcare and/or Dependent Care FSA pledge. You must re-enroll in these accounts each year to participate.
    • Supplemental AD&D: You can add, change, or drop coverage.
  7. Once you’ve made all of your elections, click the Submit Enrollment button under the Enrollment Summary heading.
  8. A submission verification will immediately appear on the screen. Click View to review your submission, or Done to complete online enrollment.
  9. Check your IU email account within 48 hours for a confirmation that your elections were accepted and processed by IU Human Resources. If you do not receive this email within 48 hours, your changes were not submitted properly.

What if I don’t have internet access?

Submitting your elections online is the preferred method; however, those without internet access are permitted to download and submit a paper enrollment form, available on the Open Enrollment Forms page. Do not submit your elections by more than one method (online and paper). Doing so could cause errors or delays in your benefit enrollments.
