Elective Benefits for Part-Time employees

Eligibility and Enrollment

Part-time employees, age 19 and older, expecting to average at least 15 hours per week. Dependent options are available on many of the benefit offerings. See plan details for specific plan eligibility

There are three enrollment periods when you can elect benefits:

Initial Enrollment applies to all eligible new hires

Initial Enrollment is the 60 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 60 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. 

Qualifying Events

If you have a qualified change in status throughout the year, you may have an opportunity to make changes to your election if done within 30 days of the qualified change. Some qualified changes in status 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.
