Did you have new dependent(s)?

Birth, Adoption, Placement for Adoption or Legal Guardianship

You have 60 days from the date of birth, adoption, placement or legal guardianship to report the event to add your child or change your benefits.  Your new child will be added as of the date of birth/adoption/placement.  Note: your new child is automatically covered on the birthing parent's medical plan for the first 31 days. But be sure to enroll them in Workday to continue their coverage. 

You can also add spouse/domestic partner or change your medical plan. A Marriage/Domestic Partnership Affidavit is required.

*For adoption or legal guardianship, email copies of the court papers to employee.benefits@multco.us.
