Deadlines

As your annual end-of-the-year reminder, here are two deadlines to watch.

1. Health insurance OPEN ENROLLMENT. As always, the most important thing to keep in mind is that if you do nothing (purposefully or by accidentally missing the deadline), as you watch your mail for the packet, you’ll always have plenty of time to make any necessary changes. We will be getting the word out as soon as the deadline time-frame has been finalized.
