Change my coverage

Learn how and when to make changes to your coverage. Most changes can be made during annual open enrollment or during a special open enrollment.

Important! Your payroll or benefits office must receive your forms and supporting documentation: 

  • No later than the last day of open enrollment, or
  • No later than 60 days after the event that creates a special open enrollment.

Can I make any changes online?

Yes. During open enrollment you can make the following changes online using PEBB My Account or through Workday.

You can:

  • Remove dependents from your coverage.
  • Reattest to the spouse or state-registered domestic partner coverage premium surcharge.

Please print or save your confirmation page when you’ve completed your changes. Check back in two business days to verify the coverage you selected and your spousal or state-registered domestic partner coverage premium surcharge attestation is correct.

When you submit an online plan change, please wait two business days to make any additional online plan changes.
