Changes in family or employment status can be used as an IRS qualifying event to apply for additional life insurance, modify your FSA elections, change enrollment in disability plans, or even add or drop health insurance. These changes can take place outside of the yearly Open Enrollment Period.
Proof of dependency is required for all dependents being added under medical insurance. A completed online enrollment change and supporting documentation must be received by the Human resources Benefits team within 31 days of the event. Failure to submit proper documentation when adding new dependents will result in coverage being dropped for that dependent(s). Enrollment changes can be made online at myHR Self Service. Read instructions on changing your enrollment online.
Insurance premiums are not prorated. Regardless of the date of the change, you are financially responsible for the entire month of insurance premiums. These may be retroactively deducted from future paychecks.
