Life Events

Outside of Open Enrollment, certain life events allow you to change your benefits during the calendar year.  Detailed information about how your benefits may be impacted and what actions to take following a qualified family status change or other life event (such as a sabbatical, international travel, or military service leave) is available in this section.

Experiencing a Change? Remember to Update Your Beneficiary

It is important to review your beneficiary designations for life insurance and your retirement savings accounts and make updates as necessary whenever your circumstances change. Update your beneficiary when you experience a life event that changes your eligible dependents, or when there is a change affecting your named beneficiary. For example if your named beneficiary dies, or if you get married or divorced, or for the birth or adoption of a child.
