Qualifying Events & Special Enrollment Rights

  • Qualifying events allow eligible participants and dependents to enroll or request changes to plan elections outside of the open enrollment period. Requests for enrollment and/or changes must be completed within 30 days of the qualifying event by using the online enrollment tool to request the change. Supporting documentation must be submitted to an SPS benefits representative after completing the online request. Enrollment and/or changes not completed within 30 days of the qualifying event may not be made until the next open enrollment period. Changes are not effective until documentation is reviewed and approved.
