When Do My Benefits Begin?

Benefits will be effective:

The date of hire if hired on the first day of the month
(e.g., July 1 or Aug. 1)
The first day of the following month if the hire date is any day other than the first (e.g., July 2 or Aug. 13)

Coverage Period

Once you make your benefit elections, those elections will remain in effect from the coverage effective date through Dec. 31 of the current plan year unless you have a qualifying life event. If you do not experience a qualifying family status change, you must wait until the next Annual Enrollment period to make changes.
