Life Events

When life happens you often have options.  When one of the following events(Qualified Status Change (QSC)) happen, you have the opportunity to make some changes to your benefits to ensure that your benefits fit your needs best.  When you have a QSC event, it is important to report these events immediately (maybe even in advance) as the window for making changes is limited!    Except where noted, you have 31 days to notify HR of these events and any changes you would like to make as a result.

Click on the events below to learn more about the rules surrounding them as QSC events.


When you realize that you need to make a change in your benefits and you have a QSC event, please fill out a Mid-Year Change Form and return to HR at the District Office as soon as possible, ensuring that you do so before the deadline.

To determine how your new or changed enrollments may change your rates, please visit our rates page.


Why the Period for Making Changes is Limited

Most of the benefits plans offered are paid with pre-tax dollars. In exchange for that tax advantage, you legally cannot enroll in, cancel, or make changes to your medical, dental, vision, or flexible spending account plans outside the annual Open Enrollment period, unless you experience one of the qualifying events described above.
