When You Need to Enroll

You are automatically enrolled for Basic Life and AD&D Insurance once you become eligible.

Each year during the Annual Enrollment period you have an opportunity to enroll or change your coverage effective January 1 of the following year.

If you are a newly hired employee, you can purchase additional life insurance coverage, as follows:

  • Full-time US employee: You become eligible after thirty (30) days of service. If you want additional life insurance, you must enroll within 30 days after you become eligible.
  • Part-time US employee: You become eligible after Ninety (90) days of service. If you want additional coverage, you must enroll within 30 days after you become eligible.

Only if you have a qualified life event change (for example, you get married), can you change your coverage outside the Annual Enrollment period; otherwise your coverage remains in effect for the full calendar year. Any changes must be made within 30 days of the qualified life event and be consistent with the event. You'll find more details on the My Life Events page.

Important Note: If evidence of good health is required for your new coverage, the current level of coverage will remain in effect until the date the insurance company receives and approves evidence of good health.
