I am getting married in July. Do I wait for annual enrollment to add my wife or can I add her now?

Marriage is a qualifying event (legal family status change) allowing you to make changes outside of the Annual Enrollment period.

You may add your spouse within 31 days of the marriage by providing a marriage certificate. The effective date of coverage will be the first of the month following the marriage date.

Please visit the Status Changes site at or contact your Benefits Specialist for assistance.
