- You will be responsible for all premiums (employee/employer) for the dependent's health plan enrollment after the dependent lost eligibility.
- Change your medical and/or dental plan coverage.
- Within 60 days of a qualifying life event above, submit this form to the Benefits Office:

- Coverage or Plan Change: Begins the first day of the month following the dependent's loss of eligibility from the plan.
