Beyond the Benefits: Open Enrollment


Typically, employees are not allowed to change their insurance plans outside of open enrollment. As an employer who offers insurance benefits, you are responsible for conveying benefit-related information to employees during open enrollment, and you must tell employees how long open enrollment lasts at your business.


What is a frequently asked Group Benefits question --
What is the HSA contribution limits for 2020?

And the answer? "$3,550 Single and $7,100 Family," says Joe Courcy, Group Benefits Expert on the team at CH Insurance. "Note that if you are  55 years or older, you can contribute an extra $1,000."
