Life Events

Human Resources encourages all employees to review their benefits, beneficiaries, emergency contacts, and other information upon experiencing a life event such as the birth or adoption of a child, legal separation or divorce, getting married, death of a dependent, newly eligible coverage from another source, spouse or child loss coverage, and dependent child turns 19 or 26.

You have up to 31 days following the life event to add or remove covered dependents to/from your coverage.

PLEASE NOTE: A marriage certificate is required to add a spouse on to health benefits and birth certificates (long version with employee’s name also on the certificate) are required to add eligible dependent children. Please bring this documentation with you when you come to HR in Room 201 of Davidson Hall to complete the required form.

If you have any questions regarding the documentation required to add an eligible dependent, please contact Human Resources at 860-832-1756.

NOTE: A "spouse" means (1) a person legally married to or joined in a civil union with a state employee or (2) until November 12, 2009 only, a domestic partner identified in a Domestic Partnership Affidavit accepted by and filed with the Office of the State Comptroller on or before November 12, 2008. On or after November 13, 2009, a domestic partner will no longer be treated as a "spouse" for purposes of any supplemental benefit program unless the partners married or entered into a civil union prior to that date.
