Welcome to Mayo Clinic!

The most important benefits item to check off your list is to complete enrollment in Employee Self-Service.  Once that is complete, here are a few next steps.

  • Member ID cards for the Mayo Medical Plan will be arriving in the mail about two weeks after you enroll.  In the meantime, you can search for in-network providers at  Once you receive your member ID card, visit and create a username and password.  Through your online member portal, you view your claims, track plan expenses and access reimbursement account and pharmacy information.
  • Speaking of in-network providers, you may want to check out the following pages for Delta Dental and Vision Care Plan providers also.
  • It's never too soon to start thinking about retirement.  As a Mayo Clinic benefit-eligible employee, you will certainly want to check out Your Pension Estimator, an online tool to help you understand how much your pension benefit could be in retirement.  From a Mayo Clinic computer, visit HR Connect and then in the box labeled "HR System Links", click on Your Pension Estimator.  You will automatically be signed in.
  • A great way to continue learning about your Benefits is through Benefits University.  Courses are offered twice a month and you can connect in person or through the live webcast feature.  For more information about how to access this great educational opportunity, choose "Events" from the "More" tab above..
