It’s March, so make your picks — on employee benefits
Nobody’s benefits renew in March. March is pretty much the opposite of benefits season. Many of you are just waiting on the fall email from your employer that reminds you to check your benefits and see if something has changed — marital status, number of children, medical history — as well as instructions on how to make changes to your package. If nothing significant has occurred, you probably just check the box to keep everything the same. It’s easy.
But this March I want to challenge you that this might be an excellent time to pull up your employee benefits from last fall and ask yourself if there’s anything in there you don’t understand or a place where maybe you should have made a different election.
