Plan Information

This year benefit-eligible employees must submit either an Open Enrollment/Change Form or an No Change Form. These forms will be processed manually, the online open-enrollment system will not be available. Employees will be required to verify their covered dependents are still eligible on either form. If you have already submitted proof of dependent eligibility documentation, you do not need to resubmit the documents.

We encourage employees to attend one of the webinars to understand the 2022 plan year changes from all benefit providers. Webinars are 10/01/2021 at 10:00am and 10/08/2021 at 2:00 pm. After reviewing the information, if employees decide to keep their plan in place, a No Change Form must be submitted. If they decide to change their existing benefits a Change Form with their desired elections for the 2022 plan year is required.

Check your NMSU email inbox for 2022 Benefits Active Enrollment information. Questions about benefit programs should be directed to Benefit Services at 575-646-8000 or
