Family Status Change

What is a Family Status Change? 

A family status change is a qualifying event that allows an employee to make changes to his/her benefits. Family status changes include events such as marriage, divorce, death, birth or adoption of a child and changes in your spouse's employment. 

When may I make changes to my insurance?

You may make changes during Open Enrollment each November (changes are effective Jan. 1). You may also make changes within 30 days of a family status change, per IRS guidelines.

How much will it cost to add another person to my insurance?

Note: You submit your family status change on UKG Pro within 30 days of the date of your family status change. If you do not, you will have to wait until the next Open Enrollment in November to make changes which will be effective Jan. 1 of the following year.
