(StatePoint) Annual enrollment season is the critical time to ensure you make the best benefit choices for you and your family for the coming year.  However, most employees don’t take time to review their options thoroughly, according to the results of a recent survey.

While employees say they value their workplace benefits, the 2013 MetLife Fall Enrollment Study indicates that over three-fifths of respondents were on ‘auto pilot,’ not making any changes to their plans during last year’s annual enrollment season.

This year, don’t be under-protected or miss out on potential money-saving options available to you at your job. Experts say that the key is to stop auto-enrolling in employee benefits and to evaluate your options more thoroughly.

Not sure where to start? Look for free educational resources to help you make better benefit decisions. For example, MetLife, a leading provider of employee benefits, is offering an educational video series created in collaboration with DIY online content producer, Lifehacker to help you navigate the process. The series can be viewed at www.YouTube.com/MetLife.

With a little preparation and review, you can demystify the process of obtaining thorough, affordable insurance and benefits for you and your family.
