Health, wellness, and insurance benefits for you and your loved ones – at all stages of life

Complete Annual Open Enrollment 2023   |   Monday, Oct. 24 to Monday, Nov. 7

Annual Open Enrollment is the one time of year (aside from a qualifying life event, like getting married or having a baby) that all USC benefits-eligible employees can make changes to their benefits elections. We invite you to explore and understand the options available to you and your dependents.

Please reflect on your current benefits and make changes if necessary. Not all of your current 2022 benefit elections will automatically roll over to 2023. Also, salary band tiers are changing in 2023 — find out more here.

Why you should enroll

Some elections do not carry over, such as Health Care and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts, so be sure to re-enroll them.

A Spousal Surcharge is added to your record if your marital status in Workday is “Married” or not specified. If it doesn’t apply to you, select “Waive.”

These are the only two weeks in which you can make changes to your 2023 health plan and benefits elections for your coverage.

Read these important reminders on preparing for the dependent eligibility audit, assigning a life insurance beneficiary, saving money through Vitality, and more.
