The Human Resources website now allows changes outside the open-enrollment period when events occur that alter the status of the member or a person within the individual's family.
Changes must be made within 30 days of the qualifying situation.
Events such as a change in work situation, marriage, divorce, birth, death or leave of absence are among those that qualify as "official" family status changes.
To make changes, visit http://hrweb.stanford.edu and click on "Your Benefits Online." After following the directions on the screen, make a printout for record keeping.
For more information, call the Stanford Benefits Department at 723-3377 or SLAC at 926-2356. SR
