Open Enrollment

Enroll for your 2019 Ancestry benefits November 1–19, 2018

This is your once-a-year opportunity to enroll in or make changes to your benefits.

Please note: This page contains information about 2019 Ancestry benefits. The remainder of this site describes your 2018 Ancestry benefits. Please check back in early January 2019 when the site will be updated with 2019 benefit details.

What’s New and Changing for 2019

We’re not making any changes to our medical, dental, and vision plans. Even though the typical health insurance cost increases in the external market are in the double digits, we were able to hold our rate increases to a minimum.

Our gym reimbursement program will expand to a fitness reimbursement program starting November 1, 2018. This will allow you to choose from a wider range of fitness options. We’ve also made it easier for you to submit your fitness reimbursements through Espresa’s platform. And now you can submit your reimbursements monthly!

  • Print your enrollment confirmation.


Call Health Advocate at 1-866-695-8622 for help thinking through your benefit choices. Email [email protected] if you have other benefits-related questions.

Note: By law, Health Care and Dependent Care FSA contribution amounts do not roll over automatically. These benefits will end on December 31, 2018. If you want to keep participating in these plans, you must take action and enroll with an annual contribution amount for 2019. 

Remember: After Open Enrollment, you can only change your benefits elections if you experience a qualifying life event, such as a marriage or the birth of a child. Changes are allowed within 30 days of the qualifying event. It's your responsibility to complete your benefits enrollment on time. We cannot make any exceptions if you miss the deadline or select the wrong plan or level of coverage, or fail to enroll the correct dependents.
