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. If you experience a Qualifying Life Event, as defined below, you have 30 days to make changes to your benefits and the change in status must be consistent with the life event.

Request a Change in Status

To request changes to your benefits outside of the initial enrolment period, submit your Qualifying Life Event form in Workday as soon as possible and within 30 days of the life event to avoid paying retroactive premiums.
