Get information about 2017 Open Enrollment dependent verification requirements

Employees planning to add dependents to their benefits for the 2017 calendar year who are not covered under the employee’s 2016 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 (PDF) is available. If the documentation does not include both the dependent’s date of birth and social security number, that information must also be provided.

Documents should be submitted to Benefits Administration in Crawford Hall, Room 320 or via fax to 216.368.3582.

Dependents included in your 2016 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.
