Making Benefit Changes

Annual Open Enrollment is the only time you can make changes and/or add or drop dependents from your benefit coverage unless you experience a qualifying life event.

What to Do if You Experience a Life Event

If you experience a qualified life event, please log on to ADP within 30 days of the date of the event to add or remove your dependent to/from your current plan. The date of your life event counts as day one of the 30-day window. For example, if your life event occurs on January 1, you have until January 30 to make a change in your coverage. If you miss your 30-day window, you will have to wait until the next Annual Open Enrollment period to change your coverage.

Qualifying Life Events Include:

  • Marriage
  • Establish domestic partnership (The state where you live determines the verification documents required)
  • Divorce, legal separation, or dissolution of domestic partnership
  • Birth or adoption of a child
  • Death of your spouse/domestic partner or dependent child
  • A change in your spouse/domestic partner’s employment status
  • A change in your dependent’s eligibility for benefits
  • A move out of the coverage area
  • Receipt of a QMSCO that requires you to cover a child under your medical plan
