The Wayne State University School of Medicine Office of Faculty Affairs & Professional Development welcomes all members of our community to join us for a special Interactive discussion:

"Understanding Your Benefits: Preparing for Open Enrollment" 

 How well do you know your WSU Benefits? Well enough to make decisions during the upcoming open enrollment for 2022? Are you certain that you are fully utilizing the benefit programs available to you and your dependents? Have you setup your retirement savings with TIAA or Fidelity? If you are unable to confidently reply “yes” to these questions, it is time to (re)familiarize yourself with your WSU Benefit Programs. 

 This session will be presented by our Total Reward experts. Information will be provided on the upcoming Open Enrollment for 2022 benefits, as well as an over view of your many benefit options. At the end of the session, participants will feel more confidence in understanding their benefits, where to find additional resources and the Open Enrollment Process.
