Your Life Events

Certain life changes can affect your pay and benefits. Make sure to make changes timely.

Qualifying Life Events

You can enroll or make a change to your benefits during the year if you’ve experienced a qualifying life event, such as:

  • Change in marital status.
  • Change in number of dependents (i.e., birth, death or adoption).
  • Change in employment status for you, your spouse or dependent impacting coverage.
  • Change in dependent eligibility (i.e., attaining age 26).
  • Medicare or Medicaid entitlement for you, your spouse or dependent causing gain or loss of coverage.
  • Gain or loss of other coverage through your spouse or for your dependent.
  • Receipt of a Qualified Medical Child Support Order (QMCSO).
  • Job status changes, such as from part-time, seasonal or temporary status to full-time status.

You may add or terminate coverage, change coverage levels (i.e., from single to family coverage), and add or remove dependents. However, you cannot change plans mid-year (i.e., from Consumer Choice 2000 to CMP). 

Required Notices can be found on
