The University of New Mexico's Department of Human Resources provides an annual Open Enrollment period for benefits allowing employees to enroll in, cancel or make changes to medical, dental, vision, life, accidental death and dismemberment, and disability plans. This year's Open Enrollment Period begins April 21 and will remain open through May 7 at 11:59 p.m.

Open Enrollment 2021

As an employee, there are only three opportunities to make changes to benefits enrollment—as a newly-hired employee, during a Qualifying Change in status and during the annual Open Enrollment period. Open Enrollment (OE) is your annual opportunity to enroll in or make changes to your UNM medical, dental, vision, life, disability, and accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance plans through LoboWeb.

OE is also your opportunity to enroll or re-enroll in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) for health care, dependent care, or both. When making your FSA elections for 2021-2022, review the FSA website for updated information about the plans. Plan changes take effect for FY22, from July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022. Additionally, there are no rate increases or plan changes for medical, dental, vision, life and disability plans for the 2021-2022 Plan Year.

Review Your Benefits Statement
Prior to Open Enrollment, take the time to review your current benefits and dependent information:

1.  Go to myUNM
2.  Login with your UNM NetID and password
3.  Enter LoboWeb (center of the screen)
4.  Click “Benefits and Deductions”
5.  Click “Benefit Statement”
6.  Follow the prompts for the secure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA protects your sensitive Benefits information in LoboWeb)

You will not be able to make changes to your benefits after Open Enrollment unless you experience a Qualifying Change of Status Event. Late enrollment changes are not permitted per IRS regulations.

No action is required on your part if you are happy with your current benefit elections. Your current benefit elections will continue for the 2021-2022 Plan Year unless you want a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) in 2021/2022. FSAs do not roll over from one year to the next. You must enroll/re-enroll in FSA every Plan Year

If you have any questions, benefits personnel are currently working remotely and are providing support during normal business hours, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. If you have questions about Open Enrollment, contact Benefits & Employee Wellness at
