Life Events

May 28, 2018

When you elect a Health and Dental option, you are locked in at that level until the next re-enrolment period, which is every two years unless you experience a Life Event.

What is a Life Event?

A Life Event is:

  • Adding a spouse through marriage, common-law relationship, or birth/adoption of a child
  • Losing a spouse through death, separation or divorce
  • A child becomes ineligible under your plan
  • Your spouse loses or gains coverage through their own employer’s group plan

What do you do if you experience a Life Event?

You must contact Human Resource Services within 60 days after experiencing a Life Event. If a Life Event is not reported within 60 days you will not be eligible to change your Flex Option and your next opportunity will be during the next re-enrolment.

For more information on your Flex Options, refer to your benefits booklet.
