    Benefits Enrollment (New Hires)
    Eligible new hires must actively enroll or waive coverage within 31 days of your actively-at-work date.  Your actively-at-work date is the effective date of your contract.  If you fail to enroll or waive coverage during the 31-day grace period, you will not be eligible to enroll in benefits until you have a qualifying event or during the next Open Enrollment period in July 2021, whichever comes first.
