Fluid Life Events: Changing your benefits after birth or adoption 

Last week, the Business Resource Center (BRC) launched a new PeopleSoft feature, Fluid Life Events, that allows you to make benefit changes online from any mobile device or computer. You can make changes to your medical, dental, vision, life, and AD&D coverage if you experience one of the following life events: marriage, divorce, birth, or adoption. 

You can still submit paper Qualifying Life Event forms and documentation to the Benefits office if you prefer; these forms can also be used for life events not yet available in PeopleSoft. 

Birth and Adoption 

The addition of a new dependent child due to birth or adoption is considered a qualifying life event, which allows you to make changes to your benefits mid-year. After welcoming a child into the family, you may want to add them to your coverage and consider other benefit changes. Make any benefits changes within 60 days of birth or 30 days from the adoption date.
