had a life event change?
If you need to change your benefits due to a life event, you have 31 days to make certain changes to your benefits.
update your benefits within 31 days
If you get married, have a baby, move or experience some other qualifying life event, you have 31 days to make changes to your benefits. If you miss this important deadline, you'll have to wait until the next open enrollment period in the fall to change your benefits, unless you have a second qualifying event that allows changes. (Remember benefit elections made during open enrollment won’t take effect until January 1 of the next year.) Even if you don't plan to make changes to your benefits, it's still important to report the event just to make sure records have been appropriately updated.
