Open Enrollment

*Open Enrollment 2021 begins July 26, 2021 at 8:00 AM and closes Aug. 12, 2021 at 4:00 PM*
*Please keep in mind that even though your new Skyward Employee ID # includes a 1 at the beginning, your SmartBen log in is still formatted using your old 5 digit employee ID #.*


Active Employees enrolled in Flex and Dependent Daycare accounts must re-enroll each plan year to continue the benefit.

All other Employees and Retirees who wish to keep their current benefits do not need to log-in to SmartBen. Your elections will automatically roll forward.

Employees and Retirees who carry their spouse on one of the FHSD MEDICAL plans are required to submit a Spousal Exclusion Form each plan year. See step 6 below.

Both benefit eligible employees need to complete the spousal exclusion form and check the “spouse works for the district” box.
