You’re eligible for benefits if you are a regular, full-time employee. Coverage begins on your date of employment in an eligible class, provided you enroll within 30 days. You may also enroll your eligible dependents. Your cost for dependent coverage will vary depending on the number of dependents you cover and the particular plan you choose. When enrolling dependents, they will be enrolled in the same plans that you select for yourself.
Making Benefits Changes
During the year, you cannot make changes to your benefits unless you have a Qualified Life Event. If you do not make changes to your benefits within 30 days of the Qualified Life Event, you will have to wait until the next annual Open Enrollment period to make changes (unless you experience another Qualified Life Event). See How to Enroll for further instructions. If you miss the deadline, you must wait until the next Open Enrollment period to make changes.
For assistance with declaring a qualifying life event or verifying dependent eligibility, call or email the Benefits Service Center at 855-444-4925 or Carlisle.ServiceCenter@adp.com.
Qualified Life Events
Life happens—and sometimes you need to change your benefits.
Changing your benefits is easy as long as it is because of a Qualified Life Event, and you must do so within 30 days of the event. Qualified Life Events include:
• Divorce or legal separation
• Birth of your child
• Death of your spouse or dependent child
• Change of employment status by you or your spouse
• A significant change in your or your spouse’s health coverage due to your spouse’s employment
• Qualification by the plan administrator of a Medical Child Support Order
*IMPORTANT: You must complete the Medical Plan Dependent Eligibility Policy form and submit to Human Resources. Your spouse will be eligible for enrollment in the medical plan only if he/she does not have other group health insurance available through their employer. EXCEPTION: If the employer requires your spouse to pay 100% of the cost of coverage, your spouse will be eligible for the Carlisle medical program.
Make sure to change your benefits coverage within 30 days.
