When your life changes, your benefits may need to change, too. Employee Services can help you understand your options.

Are you getting married? Having a baby? Is your spouse getting a new job? Events like these may affect your benefits. Your benefits elections usually remain in effect until the plan year ends on June 30. However, if you experience a qualifying life change outside of Open Enrollment, you have 31 days from the date of the change to make certain adjustments.
