Primary Information

    Outside of the Open Enrollment Benefit period, which takes place every Fall, an employee can only enroll or make changes to annually selected benefits* under these circumstances:
    • Within 30 days of your new hire (or newly benefits eligible) date, or
    • On the Qualified Life Event date or within 31 days following the Life Event date (eServe will not allow you to input a future date)
    *Annually selected benefits include health, dental, vision, FSA, life insurance, LTD and Legal Services.  There are other benefits when enrollment or change can happen anytime.  See details here.

    Some Examples of Qualified Life Events:
    • If you get married, separated, divorced, start a new domestic partnership or end a domestic partnership.
    • If your spouse, domestic partner, or other eligible dependent has started a new job, has been notified their employment is ending, or is going on leave.
    • When you add a child to your family by birth, adoption or gaining legal custody or guardianship of a child (Your child’s benefits start as of the date of their birth, adoption, custody or guardianship).
    • You or your dependent turns 26.
