Making Changes to Your Benefits

Usually you can make changes to your benefits during the Open Enrollment period, typically held each fall. Changes made during Open Enrollment are effective January first of the next calendar year.

However, if you have a qualifying event that requires you to make changes to your benefit elections, you can do so as long as you notify the HR Partners team within 30 days of the event and provide supporting documentation of the event and a status event form.

Qualifying events include:

  • Adding dependents through marriage, birth, adoption or legal guardianship
  • Removing coverage for dependents due to divorce, legal separation, death or if the dependent loses eligibility status (is eligible to enroll in another medical plan)
  • Enrolling or removing coverage due to a significant change in your (or your spouse’s) health coverage that occurs due to your spouse’s employment
