2018 Benefits Enrollment is October 30–November 10. Your current benefit elections will carry forward to 2018. You do not need to actively enroll, unless you want to enroll for the first time, make changes to your current benefits or elect a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) contribution amount for 2018. FSA elections do not carry forward. 2017 Health Savings Account elections will carry forward.
No. This year, you do not need to take action unless you want to enroll for the first time, make changes to your current benefits or elect a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) contribution amount for 2018. FSA elections do not carry forward. Health Savings Account elections will carry forward.
If you are currently enrolled in Sysco benefits and you do not enroll or waive your 2018 benefits, your 2017 benefit elections will carry forward to 2018, except for Flexible Spending Account elections.
If you waived coverage for the 2017 plan year, your election will rollover to 2018. If you elected coverage in 2017 and choose to waive coverage for your 2018 benefits, you will need to access the Total Rewards Café and select “waive coverage”. Even if you don’t want any voluntary benefits, all employees need to enter their beneficiary information into the new online system for automatic benefits: Basic Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance.
You can make changes during the benefits enrollment period October 30–November 10. After that period ends, you will not have another opportunity to enroll or make changes to your benefits until the next benefits enrollment period, unless you experience a qualified life event (i.e. marriage, divorce, birth of a child, etc.).
All full-time and some part-time, active associates are eligible for Sysco-sponsored benefits.

Before you begin enrollment, be sure to have your dependents’ information with you, including Social Security numbers and birth dates. While dependent information will carry forward to 2018, it is your responsibility to ensure that your dependent information is accurate and that your dependent is eligible for benefits under Sysco’s plans. During enrollment, you will also be required to designate your beneficiaries for benefits, such as AD&D insurance and Basic Life insurance, if you have not already designated beneficiaries. Beneficiary designation for Life and AD&D is electronic.
Please make sure you have verified all information on your covered dependents (spelling of name, date of birth and SSN) as this information is used to create the statement reflecting the coverage you had under Sysco for the year and this information is provided to the government. Information on your dependents must match their Social Security card.
