Enrollment Opportunities

Based on federal law, employees may make changes to their benefits only at the times specified below.

At Hire

Within 31 days of hire, benefits eligible employees may add or change benefits.

Moving to a Benefits Eligible Position

Employees moving from a non-benefits eligible position to a benefits eligible position have 31 days from this change in status to complete their benefits enrollment.

At Annual Enrollment

Benefits eligible employees may make any changes to their benefits once a year, without a change of status during annual enrollment, which occurs each July.

Family Status Change

Certain events in your family or changes in your dependent’s employment or coverage may enable you to make changes to your benefits outside of annual enrollment. These events, known as Family Status Changes or qualifying events, allow changes to benefits that are consistent the event. (Ex: add medical coverage to your newborn child.) 

Benefit changes and supporting documentation must be received by myHR within 31 days of the event. Learn more about these qualifying events and required dependent documentation
