No extensions! After the November 15th deadline, you can only change your benefits elections if you experience a qualifying life event, such as a marriage or the birth of a child. Changes must be made within 30 days of the qualifying event. It's your responsibility to complete your benefits elections by the November 15th deadline. We cannot make any exceptions if you miss the deadline, select the wrong plan or level of coverage, or fail to enroll the correct dependents.
