Qualifying Life Event FAQ

If you experience a Qualifying Life Event (QLE), you may be eligible to make changes to your benefit elections outside of the annual open enrollment period. To learn more about what meets the requirements of a QLE, click here.

If you do meet the requirements of a QLE, you will need to complete the enrollment form for the plan (health, dental and/or vision) and submit to the Benefits Administrator. In addition to the enrollment form, you must also submit appropriate corresponding documentation of the QLE (marriage license, divorce decree, birth certificate, proof of other coverage, etc).



To make pretax contributions to your HSA in 2017, don't forget to download the 2017 HSA Employee Contribution form and turn it in to your employer. This form must be filled out annually in order to maintain or change your HSA contributions. A copy of the form may be found here. Remember, you can make a change to your HSA contribution at any time during the year by completing a new form and submitting to the Conference Benefits Administrator.

Q: How do I inform my local church treasurer/church administrator about my benefits elections and payroll withholdings for 2017?

A: Once you have finalized your 2017 elections (even if you are not making any changes), you can complete the 2017 Payroll Withholding Summary and return to your church treasurer/administrator. Please keep in mind that completing this form DOES NOT enroll you in any of the health or retirement savings (UMPIP) plans. This form is a planning/informational tool to help your employer with your payroll withholdings.
