You May Change Your Benefits When the Following Happens:
You gain a dependent through marriage, birth, adoption or custody change
You lose a dependent through death, divorce or becoming ineligible for plan coverage. For example, when your covered child turns 26 and is no longer considered a dependent by IRS rules, they would need to be removed from your plan.
You move to a new address where your current plan is no longer offered
Your employment status changes, and it affects your eligibility. For example, you move from part-time to full-time employment (or vice versa).
You’ll have 31 days to update your benefits. As part of the enrollment process you’ll also be asked to submit certain documentation, such as a marriage or birth certificate.

Didn’t experience a qualified life event? Unfortunately, to change your benefits you’ll need to wait until the next Open Enrollment period, which happens next Fall.
Anyone dropped from your coverage will receive COBRA information about 30 days after their coverage ends. They can then choose to continue their coverage if they wish, but they will pay the full rates. COBRA is administered by PayFlex.
