George Fox Employee Benefit News

Benefit Open Enrollment 2/16-3/2

George Fox University strives to provide you and your family with a comprehensive and valuable benefits package. We want to make sure you’re getting the most out of our benefits—that’s why we’ve put together this Open Enrollment Guide.

During open enrollment, you can make changes in your benefit plans without a “change in status” reason. Any other time of the year you may only make changes for reasons such as adding or losing a dependent child, marriage, divorce, loss of other coverage, etc. Changes made during Open Enrollment will take effect April 1, 2018.
