You Have or Adopt a Child or Become a Legal Guardian
Having or adopting a child or becoming a legal guardian of a child is a Qualified Status Change (QSC) that gives you the opportunity to adjust your company coverage in ways consistent with your change in status. For example, you could enroll your new child for coverage.
Any changes based on a QSC must be submitted within 31 days of the change in status, but the time available is 90 days when the qualifying event is the birth or adoption of a child. For more information, see the subsections in the plan descriptions titled "Changing Your Coverage Midyear." You will be required to provide documentation of the new dependent's eligibility for coverage.
(You will have 90 days from the QSC to add any newly eligible dependents to the JPMC Medical Plan should that dependent pass away within this 90-day period; please contact HR Answers if this situation applies to you.)
If you are using the change to add a new dependent, you will be required to provide documentation of the new dependent's eligibility for coverage.
