Here's how to update your benefit elections due to a qualifying event:
To start, you will want to navigate through Myself > Benefits > Benefits. On this screen you will find your current benefit elections which are displayed in a dashboard and include your benefit coverage plans, your elections, and your monthly costs. In the upper right hand corner of this dashboard you will find a link you will want to click "Update Elections".
You will be brought to a page where you will need to select your event type, event date, and will be required to upload supporting documentations.
For the Event Type you will need to make a selection from the various options available to you in the drop down menu. The drop down menu includes, but is not limited to the options such as: Birth/Adoption, Death, Divorce/Legal Separation, Loss of Coverage, Marriage, Student Age, Change of Employment Status.
Event Date should be the date of the event in question, not the date you are making your election update.
Certain elections will require you to update supporting documentation - these documents can be anything from a birth certification, marriage license, or legal document pertaining to the reason for the change in benefit coverage.
Once these three fields are selected, a dashboard will appear with your current benefits listed along with two column to the right of the benefit plans. One column is titled 'modify' and the other titled 'no change' where each election will have a selection bubble. This dashboard will always auto populate the selections bubbles to 'no change', you will need to click on the modify bubble for each benefit you are looking to update. Only the elections you choose to modify will appear for you to update once you start the benefit wizard.
Once all elections you need to update are marked to modify you will want to click on the 'Start' button found on the bottom of this page.
Next you will be brought to the page where you can change your elections. We always recommend reviewing your personal information on the top of this page.
Each benefit you chose to modify will now display for you to update.
To opt into a benefit plan, you will need to click on your selection per benefit and initial each of your elections in the provided box. Elect beneficiaries or dependents where applicable. Please note, if you are opting out of a benefit your initials are still required. Opting into a benefit will create a green check mark next to the benefit name, and opting out will result in a red 'X'. Any additional information provided by your employer about a benefit will be available as an attachment under "Additional Resources."
Once you have made your selections, you will find a "Complete Enrollment" button at the bottom of the page. Submitting your elections will result in a pop up box you will need to acknowledge that will state your elections have been recorded. You will then be automatically directed back to the benefit enrollment page, which will now list a summary of your elections by benefit name, start and end dates, open enrollment dates, current enrollment, and status.
