Where does a current employee go to see what their current benefits elections are? I would like to review what I have in totality so I can make an informed decision on what I might change for this upcoming year. Thank you.

Your current plan elections are stored in Employee Self Service. From the Mayo Clinic intranet homepage, click on HR Connect. On the HR Connect homepage, under HR System links, click on Employee Self Service. Log in with your LANID and password. Then select Bookmarks>Employee Self-Service>Benefits>Current Benefits.

excellent, Thank you.
When using a in home day care, I assume we simply need to have the provider give us a receipt, then turn in the receipt online for reimbursement?

To use Employee Self Service, you will need a Mayo Clinic computer. If you are unable to access a computer on campus, you can call HR Connect at 1-888-266-0440 to enroll. Robert

I am retiring at the end of this year pre- Medicare age. I would like to investigate my options before the end of December. Where can I find medical plan information as I am not eligible for open enrollment?
