Benefits Enrollment Process

  • The IRS gives you 30 calendar days from your hire date to complete benefits enrollment.


    The district is currently in-between benefits enrollment platforms so we are enrollment by paper. The following forms need to be completed and returned by email to Lisa Roberts at benefits@olatheschools.org.

    • Benefits Enrollment Form
    • Lincoln Beneficiary Form, if you are enrolling in life insurance


    If you elected the $2,800 Blue Select Plus or $2,800 Spira Care medical plan, remember to open your Health Savings Account (HSA) with UMB.  Instructions are in your benefits packet and listed below. The district cannot contribute the $140 each month until the account is open.
