Benefits Open Enrollment

2024 Benefits Open Enrollment has begun

Penn State's 2024 Benefits Open Enrollment starts today (Nov. 6) and runs through 5 p.m. EST on Friday, Nov. 17. Through Workday, employees can elect their benefits for 2024.

To help Penn State employees make informed decisions about their benefit options for next year, Penn State Human Resources' (HR) benefits team has created the following resources:


There is still time to attend a live Zoom presentation to learn about your benefit options for 2024. Members of the Penn State benefits team, as well as representatives from Highmark Blue Shield, will be available to answer any open enrollment-related questions. See the full schedule for more details. For employees who are not able to attend a live presentation, an on-demand version is available.


Human Resources has built a section of its website dedicated to 2024 Benefits Open Enrollment.

Benefits Mentor

Employees can utilize the Benefits Mentor, a tool designed to help employees determine which health care plan may be the best for them and their families. Benefits Mentor uses an employee’s claims to help calculate which health-care plan option is the lowest cost for you, assuming you incur similar health care expenses during 2024. This tool is available in Workday and WorkLion as part of Benefits Open Enrollment.

Employees with questions should contact HR Services at 814-865-1473 or submit an inquiry via WorkLion.
