Life Events

‚ÄčLife Events occur when changes arise in your personal situation. Significant Life Events make you eligible for special mid-year changes, which could include: adding or removing dependents from your healthcare coverage, altering current Life Insurance and AD&D levels, and electing and/or changing Reimbursement Account elections amounts. Please see the documents below for further information.

All Life Event changes must be completed within 30 days after the date the event occurred.

Examples of Significant Life Events include (but are not limited to):

  • Marriage
  • Birth/Adoption of a child
  • Divorce
  • Loss of primary healthcare coverage 

Life Events are now completed through Workday, your personal Oakland County employee module. This will replace paper forms you may have completed in the past, providing a faster, safer, and more efficient way of reviewing and selecting your benefits.
