2024 Open Enrollment

To enroll in your 2024 Loyola University Chicago benefits, login to Employee Self-Service during the open enrollment period: November 1 – November 15, 2023. All changes made during this time period will be effective January 1, 2024.

Open Enrollment is your annual opportunity to enroll and make changes to your benefit choices, including elections for Flexible Spending Accounts.  Outside of Open Enrollment, changes can only be made to your elections if you or a family member experiences an IRS Qualifying Event. You can remove dependents from your plan during this time without a qualifying life event. This is also a good time to review and update your beneficiaries.

You can review your current benefits by accessing Employee Self-Service (ESS)

On-Campus Wellness Screenings & Flu Shots

In October and November, Empower Health Services will be on campus at our Lakeshore, Water Tower, and Health Sciences campuses to administer wellness screenings and flu shots.  You must register through the Empower Health Portal. You will have the option of selecting an on-campus event, individual program if you wish to go off-campus for your screening, or you can have your healthcare provider complete the Health Provider Form. Those who select to have their screenings off-campus must register with Empower Health by 11.30.2023 and you must complete your lab visit by 12.1.2023.

***New this year. After discussion and feedback from faculty and staff over the past year, we made the decision to eliminate the $50 per month wellness premium reduction for 2024. This means faculty/staff and their spouse/lda enrolled in the Loyola medical plans are no longer required to document their annual wellness screening. However, we encourage our faculty and staff to continue to stay engaged in their health by obtaining an annual wellness screening and physical each year.
