If you have a qualified life event during the year, you can make changes to your medical, dental and/or Dependent Care FSA benefits within 30 days of your qualified life event. You can also make changes to your Optional Life, Dependent Life and Family Accident Insurance. Evidence of insurability may be required in some cases.

Qualified Life Events Include:

  • Birth, adoption or placement for adoption
  • Marriage
  • Divorce, legal separation or annulment
  • Death of a dependent
  • Change in employment status for your spouse

You must make any changes to your medical, dental and/or DCFSA benefits within 30 days of your qualified life event, and your change must be consistent with your life event. If you miss this window, you will have to wait until the next Open Enrollment period to make changes.

To make a qualified life event change during the year, contact the Hess Benefits Center at Empyrean.
