Home 5 Enrolment 5 Change in Status

Life happens, and sometimes you need to make changes to your benefits outside of the initial enrolment period.

Request a Change in Status

If you experience a qualifying life event, you will have 30 days to make changes to your benefits, and the change in status must be consistent with the life event.

To request a change to your benefits outside of the enrolment period, due to a qualifying life event, complete the Qualifying Life Event Form in Workday using the link below.

Remember to submit this form as soon as possible and within 30 days of your life event to avoid paying retroactive premiums.
