New associate or newly eligible
If you are a new associate or newly eligible for benefits, you have up to 31 days from your date of hire or eligibility date to make benefit elections. If you enroll during this period, your benefits become effective on your date of hire or eligibility date. Premium deductions begin on the first pay period after you enroll and will be retroactive to your date of hire or eligibility date.
What happens if you don’t enroll within 31 days?
If you miss this enrollment window, you will not be able to enroll for benefits until the next open enrollment period. You will have only company-provided benefits (such as basic life/AD&D and short-term and long-term disability).
