Generally, there are three times when benefit-eligible employees can enroll in or may be able to change benefits:

1) as a newly hired benefit eligible employee,

2) after experiencing a qualifying status change event, or

3) during benefits open enrollment

Follow the procedures below to complete your enrollment.  


New Benefit-Eligible Employee

All new benefit-eligible employees must complete the Benefits Election/Change Summary - Form 3075  and applicable insurance enrollment forms.  All forms must be received by the Office of Human Resources within 30 days of coverage effective date. Failure to submit elections within the 30-day deadline will result in no insurance coverage for the entire plan year.    

Qualifying Event/Special Enrollment Period

If you have a qualifying "status change" event during the year, you may be allowed to make changes to your benefits mid-year.  Link to life events - special enrollment period for additional information regarding qualifying status change events.  All benefit enrollment/change forms must be received by the Office of Human Resources within 30 days of the event.
