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.

report an event

When you report an event, your updated information will automatically be sent to Chevron payroll and the appropriate Chevron benefit plan administrators. See the events below for more information about what you need to do. In general there are two ways to report a life event:

premium holiday for medical coverage

Important: Chevron will suspend the monthly premium for employees enrolled in the Chevron Medical PPO Plan, the Chevron High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP), and the Chevron High Deductible Health Plan Basic (HDHP Basic) who currently have premiums taken from their pay from May through September 2021. This means that the cost for medical coverage under these plans will be $0 during this premium holiday period.

The display of the Medical PPO, HDHP and HDHP Basic medical plans may appear as $0 on the BenefitConnect website depending on when you report or model your life event. This is not an error and is due to the system programming for the premium holiday. While the $0 rate will apply to your coverage while the premium holiday is active, know that normal medical coverage premiums will be reinstated after the premium holiday has concluded. If your life event permits you to make medical coverage changes, you should review the normal employee 2021 medical coverage rates here prior to making elections so you understand your premium cost after the premium holiday has concluded.
