My Spouse or Partner's Employment Has Changed

Normally you have to wait until open enrollment in the fall to change your benefits but some life events serve as an exception. If your spouse or qualified domestic partner has a new job, is leaving an old one, or going on leave, you can make changes to your health coverage and other benefits without waiting for open enrollment.
