ACTIVE OPEN ENROLLMENT
AUGUST 8 - 26, 2022
*All Benefit eligible employees must participate*
What is open enrollment?
Open enrollment season is a period of time each school year when RBUSD employees may elect or change their benefit options. During open enrollment, employees may change/elect their medical, dental, vision and voluntary benefit plans. You can also add or drop dependents without a qualifying life event. Below you will find updated information about the many benefits options RBUSD has to offer. Open Enrollment is Monday August 8, 2022, through Friday August 26, 2022.
Please Note: Any benefit changes elected during open enrollment will take effect on October 1, 2022.
Do I have to participate in open enrollment?
Yes! RBUSD is holding an ACTIVE open enrollment. This means, all benefit eligible employees must participate by confirming current selections or making desired changes.

How do I know if I am a benefit eligible employee?
You are considered a benefit eligible employee if you are certificated working 50% FTE or more, or classified working 20+ hours per week.
Do I have to have enroll in benefits as an RBUSD employee?
If you are a certificated employee working 50% FTE or more, or a classified employee working 4 or more hours per day, you can enroll in benefits through RBUSD. If you are a certificated employee working 90% FTE or more, or a classified employee working 7+ hours per day, you must, at a minimum, enroll in a dental and vision plan. This rule is part of our agreement with SISC.
Please note: if you were hired before October 1, 2020, and you have never enrolled in benefits through RBUSD, then you do not need to enroll, regardless of the hours you work.
Can I make changes to my benefits after open enrollment?
Open enrollment is the only time that an employee can make changes to their benefit plans, no questions asked. After open enrollment, an employee must have a qualifying event, i.e., marriage, the birth of a child, etc., to change dependent information or opt into benefit coverage. Please reach out to RBUSD's HR Coordinator, Gina Zbikowski, if you have questions about making changes outside the open enrollment window.
