New employees are required to submit benefit enrollment forms for themselves and their dependents within 30 days of their hire date. If benefit enrollment forms are not received within this time period, the employee must wait until the next Open Enrollment period or a qualifying event.
Open Enrollment is the only time that employees may add eligible dependents to their benefits plans unless there is a qualifying life event. Examples of qualifying events are the birth of a child, adoption, legal guardianship, marriage, divorce, loss of coverage, or a reduction in working hours of the employee. Find out how to add/remove dependents.
New employees hired between the 1st and the 15th of the month will receive benefits beginning the 1st of the next month. Employees hired between the 16th and the end of the month will receive benefits the 1st of the month following the next month.
