Making Enrollment Changes during the Year

Upon making benefit elections, they remain in effect until the next open enrollment period. The Annual Benefit plan year is January 1 through December 31.

IRS regulations allow changes to benefits outside of the open enrollment period in the event of a qualified life event. Qualified life events include:

  • Birth, Adoption
  • Marriage, Divorce
  • Death of spouse, domestic partner or other dependent
  • Spouse’s or domestic partner’s employment begins or ends
  • Dependent’s eligibility status changes due to age, student status, marital status or employment
  • Loss of other health coverage
  • Child Medical Support Orders

If you experience a qualified life event, you MUST notify Human Resources within 30 days of the event in order to make changes to your plan. Failure to make timely notice would require you to wait until the next open enrollment.
