You must enroll in the benefit plans within 60 days from your date of hire. After 60 days you may only enroll during the open enrollment period. The plan year is January 1 to December 31, so after the initial 60 days of employment, your coverage would not begin until January 1. It is recommended that you enroll within your first week of employment. Enrollment forms are available from your departmental benefits coordinator or at the University Human Resources web site ( uhr.umd.edu ) by going to “Forms” and clicking on the Benefits dropdown box.
