birth or adoption

Chevron doesn't have a maternity leave policy. That's because the time you need away from work is covered under several Chevron benefits or leave policies, depending on your circumstances.

changing your benefits

You have 31 days from the date of birth or adoption to add your child to benefits. If you miss this deadline, you must wait until the next open enrollment period or another qualifying life event.

dependent verification

Employees are required to verify the eligibility of any new dependents you intend to enroll in your Chevron health plans. If you enroll your dependent(s) in health coverage during your 31-day deadline, you have up to 60 days to obtain and submit requested documentation that verifies your dependent(s) are eligible to participate in Chevron’s health benefits. If you don’t provide acceptable documentation by the deadline, your dependent(s) will be disenrolled from coverage. Dependent verification will be required if you enroll dependent(s) in any of the following health benefits:

  • Medical
  • Dental
  • Vision Plus Program

After you submit your documentation, a statement confirming your dependent’s eligibility to participate will be sent to you.

  • If additional information is required, you’ll be notified.
  • If your dependent is not eligible to participate, the dependent will be disenrolled from the plan at the end of the month in which you receive notification.
  • If the 60-day deadline to submit the documentation expires and the HR Service Center has received no documentation or insufficient documentation, then the dependent will be disenrolled from the plan at the end of the month in which the 60-day deadline occurs.

If your dependent is disenrolled from coverage, you are still allowed to re-enroll your dependent(s) again at the next open enrollment period or with 31-days of a qualifying life event, but you’ll be required to follow the dependent verification process again at that time.
