Dependent Moving Into or Out of the Service Area
Timing and Documentation
If you have had an eligible dependent move into or out of the service area, you may be eligible for a Qualifying Life Event.

To Make Changes
You can initiate a Qualifying Life Event and upload a documentation of the event by logging into PeopleSoft Self Service and following this path:
Main Menu> Self Service > Benefits > Life Event > My dependent moved into the coverage area
Main Menu> Self Service > Benefits > Life Event > My dependent moved out of the coverage area
If you do not have documentation of your event, you may send an email request to DHRBenefits.FGG@sdcounty.ca.gov to explain what changed and confirm the date of move into or out of the service area.
An Employee Benefits representative will then open a Life Event and send you an email with instructions to make your elections. Receipt of your request will begin the Life Event process, but you must then log in to actively make your new elections after receiving email notification from Employee Benefits.
