GENERAL INFORMATION - All Employees

You have 60 days from the date of the eligible appointment to enroll in a medical plan.  After 60 days, an employee has the opportunity to request enrollment either as a "Special Enrollment" or "Late Enrollment" event. Late Enrollment would require a 90-day waiting period for coverage to become effective.  Special Enrollments are usually effective the 1st of the month following submission of your enrollment form to the Office of Human Resources.  Please see the Office of Human Resources for further information regarding Special or Late Enrollment events.  Employees who enroll and wish to change from one plan to another may only do so during the annual Open Enrollment period.

You have 60 days from the date of the eligible appointment to enroll in a dental plan. After 60 days, enrollment would only be allowed during the annual Open Enrollment period.

A change in the employee's family status (i.e., birth, adoption, marriage, domestic partner, death) must be reported to the Office of Human Resources within 60 days of the event to avoid delays in benefit effective dates, including a delay until the following annual Open Enrollment Period.
