Life Events

We know things change and we want to help you prepare. If you experience a qualifying life event, you may be eligible to make changes to your benefits plans outside of the annual open enrollment period. The change must be requested within the established timelines and be consistent with the type of qualifying event you experienced. For example, if you get married you can add your spouse to your plans within 30 days of the marriage.


Visit the Qualifying Life Events document to get the information you need to request changes to your benefits and a checklist of other changes that you may need to make. The required Dependent Eligibility Verification change form can be found on the forms page.


Consider as well, all the places you may need to change your beneficiaries and contact information.  This document will provide you some resources for this processes.
