About Benefit Election Changes

Benefits elections are made by employees at the time of hire (or as they become eligible), and during the Annual Enrollment period.

Employees can make changes to benefits for the current benefit plan year (outside of Annual Enrollment) such as to add or drop a dependent if they have experienced a qualified life event change. Employees should contact the Shared Services Center HR at 866-955-SAIC (7242), option 3 or and a benefits specialist will explain the process based on what change is required.

Please note, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations require that enrollment elections must remain in effect for the entire plan year unless you experience a qualified life event change.

You have 31 days from the date of a life event change to modify your elections without waiting until the next Annual Enrollment period.
