Benefits Choice

The Benefits Choice Period is announced to employees annually, but is usually held from May 1 through May 31 each year. During this time, eligible employees may make changes to their health, dental, and vision insurance coverage for the next plan year. Each plan year runs from July 1 through June 30.

Insurance Changes Outside the Choice Period
You may make changes at other times during the year due to a Qualifying Change in Status, for example, the birth of a child.

  • Changes are in effect for the remainder of the current plan year.
  • Certain benefit selections may require support documentation and may need to be requested within 60 days of the qualifying event.

Life Insurance Changes
Changes to life insurance coverage may be made anytime during the year for spouse and child and for employee coverage above $50,000. An approved statement of health may be required to add or increase coverage.
