Creating an Account in the CMS Benefits Portal

Benefit elections for Health, Dental, and Life insurance and Flexible Spending have been moved  to the new State of Illinois MyBenefits Marketplace website.

 

On September 30, 2016, all benefits information was moved from iPeople to the CMS Benefits portal.  This portal will allow you to review your benefits as well as complete the annual Benefits Enrollment.  In order to review or make changes to your benefits, you will need to create an account within the CMS Benefits portal.

 

If you have any questions regarding making a change, or with your Benefits Enrollment, please call MyBenefits Marketplace Customer Service toll free at 1-844-251-1777 or TTY toll free 1-844-251-1778, Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM CST.
