Benefits Annual Enrollment

Published April 20, 2021

Benefits annual enrollment is April 19-30. Newport News Shipbuilding employees should use this time to review their benefits and make changes as needed. During annual enrollment, shipbuilders should:

  • Update their tobacco-use status: United Steelworkers, guards and salaried employees who do not use tobacco must update their status to “tobacco-free” to save $660 on their Huntington Ingalls Industries medical insurance starting July 1.
  • Re-enroll in health care and dependent care flexible spending accounts (FSAs): Employees enrolled in FSAs must re-enroll to maintain coverage.
  • Review benefit changes: Employees should review their plan options and make sure they have the coverage they need for themselves and their families.

Employees can make changes to their benefits and update their tobacco-use status on UPoint through or by calling the Huntington Ingalls Benefits Center at 1-877-216-3222.
