There are three enrollment periods when you can elect benefits:
Initial Enrollment applies to all eligible new hires
Initial Enrollment is the 30 calendar days that you have beginning on your date of hire to enroll yourself and your dependents in benefits. If you don't enroll within 30 days of becoming eligible, you'll be required to wait until the next Open Enrollment to enroll in benefits.
*New hires can enroll in most benefits without having to answer medical questions. However, if you choose to waive coverage during your initial enrollment opportunity and enroll at a later date you may be required to answer medical questions.
Qualified Life Events
If you have a qualified life event throughout the year, you may have an opportunity to make changes to your election if done within 30 days of the qualified life event. Some qualified life events include: marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of a child, change in child's dependent status, death of a spouse, child or other qualified dependent, change in spouse's benefits or employment status, reduction in hours, etc.
For newborn children, be sure to enroll them within 30 days of their birth. Don't wait on the social security number or birth certificate.
