Life Events Changes for Employees

Qualifying life events consist of both family changes and employment changes. Outside of Open Enrollment, these events allow you to change your benefits during the calendar year.

When you experience a qualifying life event, you have 30 days from the date of the event to make changes to your benefits. If you miss the deadline, your next opportunity to request a change is when another qualifying life event occurs, or during the annual Open Enrollment period with an effective date of January 1.
