  • Medical, Dental, Vision, Flexible Spending, Voluntary Accidental Death and Dismemberment

    You can only make changes to your medical, dental, flexible spending account, and voluntary accidental death and dismemberment during annual Open Enrollment or if you experience a qualifying status change.

    There are a number of qualifying status change events that allow you to change your benefits coverage. The qualifying event must be consistent with the change being requested. Qualifying Status Change (QSC) Events include, but are not limited to:

    • Marriage or divorce
    • Birth or adoption of a child
    • Death of a covered dependent
    • Change in insurance eligibility for a dependent
    • Change in health insurance eligibility due to a relocation of residence or work place (in or out of a network service area)
    • Change in employment status of employee, spouse, or dependent that affects health insurance coverage (employment status changes include termination of a spouse or dependent’s employment, unpaid leave of absence of more than 31 calendar days and change from part-time to full-time or vice-versa).

    If you have a change in status, you must report the event within 30 days of the event via Workday. Please note, you will need to provide documentation, such as a marriage, divorce, birth, or death certificate. 

  • Short-Term Disability, Long-Term Disability, Legal Plan

    You can only make changes to your Short-Term Disability, Long-Term Disability, and Legal Plan benefits during the annual Open Enrollment period.

  • Retirement, Voluntary Excess Life Insurance, Long-Term Care

    Other benefits such as the voluntary 403(b) retirement plans, voluntary excess life insurance, and long-term care are not part of the Open Enrollment process. You may enroll in, or make changes, at any time.


    Note, some benefits may require you to complete an application, medical evidence of insurability (if applicable), and be approved by the vendor.

    You may also review and make changes to your beneficiary designations for group and voluntary life insurances, as well as the Employees' Retirement Plan, in Workday.

    To review and make changes to your 403(b) plan beneficiary designations, log into your secure Fidelity NetBenefits and/or TIAA-CREF account(s).
