Eligibility & Enrollment

How to Enroll

You can enroll in two ways:

Benefits elected during Open Enrollment will become effective on January 1. After Open Enrollment ends, you cannot change your benefit elections unless you experience a qualified family life event, such as a birth or a marriage.


Your Enrollment Checklist

Use this checklist to make the most of your enrollment opportunity:

  • Learn about your benefit options.
  • Determine how much you will contribute to your HSA or FSA.
  • Make sure your dependent information is correct and all your dependents are still eligible.
  • Review your Life Insurance beneficiaries in UKG — it’s a good idea to review your Life Insurance beneficiary information (especially if your personal circumstances have changed) and make updates as needed.
  • Complete your benefits enrollment.

When Coverage Begins

Benefits elected during Open Enrollment will be effective January 1 – December 31, 2024.

Changing Benefits Midyear

During the year, you can only change your benefits when you experience a qualified life event. Qualified life events include:

  • Marriage, divorce, or legal separation
  • Addition of eligible registered domestic partner, or termination of registered domestic partnership
  • Birth or adoption
  • A dependent becomes ineligible for coverage elsewhere
  • Death of your covered spouse/registered domestic partner or one of your children
  • Change in work status for you or your spouse/registered domestic partner

If you experience a qualified life event and would like to change your coverage, you must notify the Benefits Department by making the change in UKG within 30 days of the event. You must provide necessary documentation when applicable (for example, a marriage certificate, birth certificate, or proof of loss of coverage).

If you fail to make a change within 30 days of a qualified life event, you won’t be eligible to make a change until the next Open Enrollment period, unless you experience another qualified life event.

Tip: Think About the Whole Cost


When choosing a medical plan, it’s important to think about the whole cost of coverage — the amount you’ll spend out of your paycheck, as well as out of your pocket (copays, deductibles, and coinsurance).
