Baylor University uses SmartBen™, a online benefits platform, to provide faculty and staff 24/7 access to view and manage their benefits. In November, open enrollment takes place and employees are able to enroll in or renew a plan. Outside of open enrollment, you may not change your benefits unless you experience a qualifying life event. If you experience a life event that requires you to change your benefits, you may do so within 30 days of the life event.

Click on the links below to learn more about SmartBen™, Open Enrollment, and Qualifying Events. On these pages you will find step-by-step guides and video tutorials to use SmartBen™, as well as information about what is considered a qualifying life event, and how to enroll during the open enrollment window in November. 

NOTE: Please note your benefits are effective from your first day of employment thus you will be responsible for premium elections from your hire date.
