Qualified Life Events
Are you experiencing a qualified life event? Some examples of qualified life event include, but are not limited to:
- Birth or adoption
- Change in Marital Status (Marriage or Divorce}
- Loss of other coverage
- Attaining the age of 26
If you believe you are experiencing a qualified life event go to HRIntouch. There is a 30 day window from the date the life event occurred in which to initiate the coverage change in HRIntouch. Documentation of the qualified life event is required to be uploaded to HRIntouch prior to the 30-day window expiring. The District will not approve a qualified life event unless all necessary documentation is provided prior to the 30-day window. If you miss the 30-day window you will need to wait to the next open enrollment period to make the change. Open enrollment takes place in April each year for a July 1st effective date.
