Saturday, November 9, 2019


Each year, Lehigh employees can review their insurance decisions and make changes during a two-week period known as Open Enrollment.

Open Enrollment for 2020 flexible benefits began on Monday, November 4 and continues until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, November 18. The benefits selections and changes made during this period will take effect January 1, 2020.

We’ve produced a number of resources for you to use to complete your enrollment. HR is also providing several in-person and online information opportunities. Here’s a rundown of all of our resources.

Spouse/Partner Surcharge Waiver

If you add your spouse or partner to your insurance, you must complete the Spouse/Partner Surcharge form. This form helps us determine if you will be charged the $100 monthly spouse/partner surcharge for insurance coverage, so it is important that you complete the form as soon as possible.


Remember, once Open Enrollment is closed, you may only make changes to your flexible benefits in response to a Qualifying Life Event. We encourage you to take this opportunity to review your benefits and ensure you have the plans that you feel best suit your needs.
