2024 Benefits Enrollment

  • 2024 Benefits Guide

    2024 Open Enrollment Presentation

    During the year, if you need to add or remove coverage for yourself or your dependents, you must wait until the next open enrollment period, unless you have a qualifying life event as defined by the IRS.

    The IRS requires that you make changes to your coverage within 30 days of your qualifying life event.  You'll need to provide proof of the event, such as a marriage certificate, divorce decree, birth certificate or loss of coverage letter.  It is your responsibility to notify human resources through the benefits email (benefits@olatheschools.org) or call 913.780.8024.





    Si deseas agregar, eliminar o realizar cambios en sus elecciones de beneficios, deberás iniciar sesión en employee Navigator durante la ventana de inscripción abierta para hacerlo. También se recomienda que actualices la información de su beneficiario en este momento.
