WHY IS OPEN ENROLLMENT IMPORTANT TO ME?
Per Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules, employees enrolled in pre-tax benefit plans may only make
elections or changes to their plans once per year. Because of these rules, your benefit elections will
be binding through December 31, 2022; however, you may make changes to your election if you
experience one or more of the following special circumstances, which are known as “Qualifying
• Birth, adoption or placement for adoption of an eligible child
• Divorce, legal separation or annulment of marriage
• Loss of spouse’s job or change in work status (when coverage is maintained through spouse’s plan)
• A significant change in your or your spouse’s health coverage that is attributable to your spouse’s employment
• Death of spouse or dependent
• Loss of dependent status
• Becoming eligible for Medicare or Medicaid during the year
• Receiving a Qualified Medical Child Support Order (QMCSO)
These Qualifying Life Events allow you to make plan changes during the year. For any allowable changes, you must inform the Human Resources
Department within 31 calendar days of the event. Benefit changes that are requested due to a ‘change of mind’ cannot be allowed until the next
Open Enrollment period. For additional information concerning plan changes, please contact Human Resources.
