Benefit Enrollment Changes

Employees are allowed to make changes to their benefits during the year if a "major qualifying event" occurs. Such events include:

  • Marriage or Domestic Partnership
  • Divorce or Domestic Partnership Dissolution
  • Birth or Adoption of a Child
  • Custody Change
  • Loss/Gain of Coverage
  • Death of a Family Member 

Other events that warrant a change to the employee's benefits are:

  • Dependent Moved out of the Household
  • Loss/Gain of Economic Dependence for Child
  • Dependent enters Military Service

To request a change in benefits due to a "major qualifying event," employees must complete a Benefits Enrollment Worksheet and submit it to HR Benefits within 60 days of the event.
