Confirming your enrollment

You can review your Open Enrollment elections in UCPath online on the Benefits Summary page after your Open Enrollment changes are finalized — usually the next business day after you submit your elections.

You do not receive a submission confirmation statement when you submit your benefit enrollments in UCPath, but you receive a final benefits enrollment confirmation statement via email when Open Enrollment processing is completed in December 2019.
