Update benefits with changes in family

If you’ve had a recent change in your family, your insurance and retirement benefits might need alteration as well.
 
Marriage, divorce, new children and children no longer eligible for coverage could make an adjustment timely.
 
To add new eligible dependents, you must send a completed Employee Enrollment/Change form and appropriate dependent certification form(s), if required, within 60 days to Human Resource Services. Social Security numbers will be needed; however, HRS is able to add dependents initially without the number, so don’t delay.
 
When deleting coverage on a dependent no longer eligible, the 60-day deadline is not as crucial; however, you may be paying premiums unnecessarily.
 
Benefits you might consider: life insurance amounts; beneficiaries; medical/dental coverage; retirement beneficiaries.
