Goal

Need to setup Open Enrollments for Oct-Dec2015 and another for Jan-Dec2016 .
Need to allow employees to enroll in both Open Enrollments Programs at the same time.

The Benefits year is currently from Nov-Oct.
For 2016, customer would like to switch to a Jan-Dec schedule.
Which means when the current plan year ends on 31-Oct, benefits need to be offered for Nov-Dec 2015 and then again for Jan-Dec-2016.

The plan is to have a mini-enrollment for the Nov-Dec 2015 plan year.
The 2nd plan is to have a major enrollments for Jan-Dec 2016 plan year and going forward Open Enrollments Plan year will always be Jan-Dec.

There has been a request that employees be allowed to enroll for the min-enrollments 2015 and the major enrollments 2016 at the same time via the same Self Service benefits enrollments screens.
This is what we would like to setup.

Is it possible to set up two Open Enrollments at the same time for 2 different time periods?
