Contact Membership when you have questions about the membership administration portal, eligibility, new hires, termination, retirees, COBRA or spending accounts.
Newly hired or newly eligible employees have 31 days from their first day of work, or becoming eligible, to enroll in benefits.
For newly hired employees, coverage will be eﬀective on the first day of work.
For newly eligible employees, coverage will continue to be effective the first day of the following month unless the change is made on the first day of the month, then it is that day.
If you do not enroll by the deadline, you will not be eligible to enroll again until the next Open Enrollment period unless you experience a Qualifying Event which allows you to enroll. A Qualifying Event is a recognized family status change such as marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of a dependent, death of a spouse or dependent, gain or loss of group benefits for a spouse or dependent.
A Qualifying Event enables you to make a coverage change during the middle of a Plan Year, provided the change is consistent with the family status change, and the request for the change is made within 31 days of the event and includes the required supporting documentation.
In addition to covering yourself, you may elect coverage for your eligible dependents. They include:
Your lawful spouse.
Your child(ren) or stepchild(ren) under the age of 26.
Note: In the event of a divorce, coverage for your former spouse and/or stepchild(ren) will end on the last day of the month in which the divorce is finalized. You must notify the SEHP when the divorce is final.
During enrollment, required documentation must be uploaded online through the Membership Administration Portal (MAP) https://sehp.member.hrissuite.com to cover eligible dependents.
