Making Benefit Changes During the Year
The choices you make when you enroll generally remain in effect for the entire year. However, you may change your benefit elections during the year if you have a qualifying change in status, or if you or a qualified dependent loses other group coverage. For more information about making changes during the year, contact the Division of Employee Benefits or your Human Resources Manager.
To drop or add coverage during the plan year, you must submit a completed enrollment form and proof of the family status change (such as a marriage or birth certificate) within 30 days of the effective date of the change in status (example: 30 days from the date of marriage). Your coverage will then become effective on the first day of the month following the month in which the change occurred. If you do not make the change within 30 days of when the change takes effect, you must wait until the next Open Enrollment period.
Changes to optional life insurance can be made at any time, but may require additional information about your or your family member’s health. You can make changes to your 403(b) Savings Plan at any time.
If you have questions contact the Division of Employee Benefits.
