When you have a family change, contact your institution benefits contact as soon as possible to find out what benefits changes you may make. Most benefit plans have a 30-day window that allows you to make changes to your benefits.
When you gain a family member (for example: marriage, birth, or adoption), you can typically add the family member to your plans within 30 days of adding the individual to your family. When you lose a family member (for example: divorce or death), you must take action to remove the family member from your benefits. Removal does not occur automatically.
