Enrollment Opportunities and Deadlines 

There are three occurrences during a plan year when you may enroll or make changes to your benefit plans.

New Employee/Newly Benefits Eligible Employee

As a new employee or a newly benefits eligible employee, you must enroll within 31 days of your date of eligibility.

Life Events

Certain changes in your or a dependent's employment, or other life changes for you or a dependent may be considered qualified family status changes or other life events. These may enable limited changes in your benefit elections within a restricted period of time. Human Resources must be notified and in receipt of proper supporting documentation within 31 days of the date of the event. Visit the Life Events page for more detailed information.
