Knowledgebase/FAQ: Annual Enrollment
I am getting married in July. Do I wait for annual enrollment to add my wife or can I add her now?

Revised July 2015

Marriage is a qualifying event (legal family status change) allowing you to make changes outside of the Annual Enrollment period.

You may add your spouse within 31 days of the marriage by providing a marriage certificate. The effective date of coverage will be the first of the month following the marriage date.

Please visit the Status Changes site at http://www.utsa.edu/hr/Benefits/fsc.html or contact your Benefits Specialist for assistance.
