The annual open enrollment period for your 2021 Nokia health and welfare benefits coverage is September 21, 2020 – October 9, 2020. You will find most of your enrollment information online through this Enroll in Your Benefits page here on BenefitAnswers Plus.
You may enroll online or by telephone as follows:
View your 2021 coverage and costs, as well as make your elections on the Your Benefits ResourcesTM (YBR) website
You cannot call the Nokia Benefits Resource Center to enroll in or make changes to your 2021 coverage, or to ask questions about your 2021 plan options and pricing, during this time.
View your 2021 coverage and costs, as well as make your elections on the YBR website.
You may also call the Nokia Benefits Resource Center to enroll in or make changes to your coverage. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., ET.
To access your personalized benefits information and to enroll, you will need your YBR User ID and password.
If you have forgotten your User ID/password, go to the YBR website, select “Forgot User ID or Password?” and follow the prompts to get a new one(s).
Tip: If you have not already done so, log on to the YBR website today and provide your preferred telephone number — home or mobile. Just select “Your Profile,” then “Personal Information” and enter your phone number where indicated. We recommend that you add a mobile phone number to take advantage of additional security and text messaging capabilities. (If you have elected electronic delivery of benefits communications, those communications will still be sent to your email address on file.)
Your default coverage is the Nokia health and welfare benefits coverage in which you and your covered dependent(s) will be enrolled automatically for 2021 if you do not take any action during the annual open enrollment period.
Exception: Flexible Spending Account (FSA) elections do not roll over year-to-year. You must actively elect to contribute to the FSA(s) during the annual open enrollment period each year.
Because your default coverage for 2021 may, in some cases, be different from your 2020 coverage, it is your responsibility to confirm that your 2021 default coverage shown on the YBR website during the annual open enrollment period is the coverage you want for 2021.
Here is how to find your default coverage starting Monday, September 21, 2020:
The copy of your default coverage record will be mailed to your address on file within seven to 10 business days.
Note that, if you have signed up to receive communications from the Nokia Benefits Resource Center electronically, the copy will be sent to your Secured Participant Mailbox on YBR within one business day.
The easiest and most convenient way to access the information you need to enroll continues to be through the YBR website during the annual open enrollment period. However, if you prefer to have a copy of the annual open enrollment kit sent to you, you can only make your request through the Nokia Benefits Resource Center’s automated system.
Like YBR, the automated telephone system is easy and convenient to use. Starting September 21, 2020, just follow three simple steps:
Your annual open enrollment kit will be mailed to your address on file within seven to 10 business days, so plan accordingly. Late enrollments will not be accepted.
Note that annual open enrollment kits are always sent via US Postal Service mail, even if you have signed up to receive communications from the Nokia Benefits Resource Center electronically.
SBCs for the health plans you are eligible for will be available on BenefitAnswers Plus beginning on September 21, 2020. You can use them to compare health plans when making decisions and enrolling in coverage.
Look for an email at your work address from “Nokia US Benefits” with the subject line: “2021 US Benefits: The Annual Open Enrollment Period Starts September 21, 2020." Please take the opportunity to view your 2021 coverage options and costs, and make your elections by the October 9, 2020, deadline.
