Employees planning to add dependents to their benefits for the 2022 calendar year who are not covered under the employee’s 2021 benefits plan must provide appropriate dependent verification to Benefits Administration prior to making their elections during open enrollment this November. Providing dependent verification prompts Benefits Administration to add your dependents to HCM, allowing you to add those dependents when using the open enrollment system. You will be unable to add new dependents to your benefits until you submit the required dependent verification.
A list of acceptable dependent verification documents can be found by accessing Dependent Verification Document Requirements (PDF). Documents should be submitted to HR Service Center via Box: Ask HR Box. If the documentation does not include both the dependent’s date of birth and social security number, that information must also be provided. Please note, documentation containing social security numbers or other sensitive data should never be sent via email or fax.
Please note that dependents already included in your 2021 benefits are already listed in HCM and will be available when you use the open enrollment system in November. No additional dependent verification is needed.
As a reminder, Benelect open enrollment for 2022 begins today (Nov. 8) and runs through Tuesday, Nov. 30. During open enrollment, the Virtual Benefits & Wellness Fair will be held from Monday, Nov. 8, to Friday, Nov. 12.
