You have the opportunity to enroll for coverage when you first become eligible. This is usually when:

  • You are first hired
  • or

  • You move to a position that is eligible for benefits

What You Need to Do to Enroll

  1. Discover Your Options

    Review all the benefits available to you on this website — the best place to find information about your benefit options.

  2. Know the Enrollment Deadline

    For medical, dental, optional life insurance, family accident insurance coverage, voluntary benefits (accident, critical illness and hospital indemnity insurance, pet insurance, legal insurance and identity theft protection), as well to contribute to a dependent care FSA, you must enroll within 30 days of when you become eligible.

    You will be automatically enrolled in long-term disability insurance, basic life insurance and business travel accident insurance, as well as the savings and pension plan. If you don’t enroll in the savings plan, you will be automatically enrolled after 30 days of employment.

    If you enroll in the Hess Medical Plan, you can establish a Health Savings Account (HSA) when you enroll for medical coverage or anytime afterwards.

  3. Decide Who to Cover

    You can enroll yourself and your family in Hess benefits. Be sure you know who’s eligible before you choose coverage.

    You are eligible if you are a full-time employee.

    You may also cover members of your family. Eligible dependents are:

    • Your spouse
    • Your same- or opposite-gender domestic partner
    • Your children through the end of the calendar year in which they reach age 26. Eligible children include:
      • Your natural and adopted children (including children placed with you for adoption)
