THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
BENEFITS ONLINE ENROLLMENT INSTRUCTIONS
You have as much time as you need to complete the enrollment session.
We estimate it will take you about 30 to 40 minutes to complete.
Please give yourself enough time to complete this session in one sitting.
Because of security measures, no personal data is saved at any point-if you
close down the session part way through, or if your keyboard is inactive for
more than 30 minutes, your session will end and you will lose all your work.
Once you have completed all of your forms, you will be prompted to print them.
If you exit the session before printing the completed forms, your work
will be lost.
We strongly advise you review the Benefits information specific to your employee
group to ensure you are as prepared as possible before beginning the online
enrollment. This will allow you to make informed choices about optional benefits,
and about any costs associated with the benefits you choose.It is also important
for you to learn what UBC benefits you are eligible for and when coverage becomes
effective so that you can consider the continuity of your coverage between your
group plan with your former employer (or individual coverage) and UBC.
Since the session will time out if your keyboard is inactive for more than 30
minutes, please review the Benefits information before starting the online session.
Click on your employment group to begin reviewing the Benefits information, including Eligibility for effective dates and Premium Rates for cost information:
Please Note: The UBC Extended Health and Dental Care Plans allows for double
coverage - if you have coverage under a spouse / partner's plan, you may
also enrol onto the UBC plan provided that your spouse / partner's plan
allows for double coverage. If your spouse / partner's plan does not allow
for double coverage, you must make a decision as to which plan you and your
family would like to enrol into.
