Benefits Confirmation Statements now available online

Faculty and staff eligible for Ohio State benefits can review their 2019 Benefits Confirmation Statement in Employee Self Service today through November 30, 2018. Employees will also receive a copy of the 2019 Benefits Confirmation Statement at their home addresses.

The statement reflects the enrollment status in university-sponsored medical, dental, vision, flexible spending accounts (FSA), life insurance and short-term disability plans that will be in effect from January 1, 2019, until December 31, 2019.

It is very important that employees review their 2019 benefits elections and verify that all are accurate. This is the final opportunity, outside of a qualifying event, to change your elections.

To view your Confirmation Statement online:

  1. Visit Employee Self Service
  2. Click View Confirmation Statement (below eBenefits)

If no corrections are needed, print the statement for your records.

If the benefit elections are inaccurate, you may make changes using one of the methods below:

Click on Open Enrollment on the Employee Self Service home page. Make your changes and click Authorize and Submit after you have made changes. Print an updated confirmation statement for your records.


Print the confirmation statement (or use the copy mailed to your home address) and write corrections directly on it, then sign and date the statement. Fax the completed confirmation statement to 614-292-7813 or return via mail or drop off to the Office of Human Resources Benefits Services, 1590 North High Street, Suite 300, Columbus, OH 43201.

All changes must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. EST on Friday, November 30, 2018. For benefit plan details, visit hr.osu.edu/oe.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Human Resources Customer Service at HR@osu.edu, 614-292-1050 or 1-800-678-6010. Representatives are available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
