During the year, you can only make changes to your benefits if you experience a qualifying life event. “Qualifying Life Events” include:
- Annulment of marriage, divorce or legal separation
- Entering into or terminating a domestic partnership
- Birth of a child, adoption, placement for adoption
- Leave of absence (under certain circumstances)
or gaining coverage.
You have 60 days from the date of the qualifying event to make changes to your County of San Diego benefit elections. Any change you make must be consistent with the qualifying life event change.
