Life/Work Changes

A Qualifying Life Event, or QLE, to change benefits during the plan year is defined as a change in status due to:
  • marriage
  • birth of adoption of child(ren)
  • death of a covered dependent
  • divorce of legal separation
  • loss or gain of insurance by your spouse's employer-sponsored coverage
  • termination of employment

When you have a QLE, please alert the Benefits Department as soon as possible. Employees can only initiate the TU Gains Dependent QLE in their Self-Service account, but everything else must be initiated by a Benefits team member. Even though employees can initiate the TU Gains Dependent QLE, a Benefits team member must approve it and see a supporting document. You have 30 days after the date of any qualifying life event to make changes to your benefits and submit supporting documentation to the Benefits Department.
