Events close for multiple reasons. The most common are: 1-Your event has expired. You have 31 days from a qualifying event to make/update your changes. 2-All events close when payroll is processing and every Wednesday at 3 p.m. for updates/changes. New hire events re-open automatically the next day. Please call the benefits office at 404-727-7613 to re-open other events (i.e.-Family Status Changes).
You can contact our front desk (404-727-7613) to verify if your event has been completed correctly, to verify the benefits you’ve selected and to confirm who you’ve added/deleted. If you are adding a dependent, their insurance is active on the date of the Family Status Change. If you are deleting yourself or a dependent, the termination is effective until the last day of the month.
When employees go on unpaid leave, they are billed separately for benefits. If you are not on unpaid leave, you need to contact the main benefits line (404-727-7613).
You can use the modeling tool located in Self-Service to calculate your deductions to maximize your retirement.
You can request a new ID card if your card is lost or stolen, or if you want to order an additional card for a covered dependent. For medical and dental, you can order new ID cards online through Aetna Navigator at www.aetna.com. You can also print a temporary ID card from Aetna Navigator until permanent cards are received. You can also order ID cards by contacting the vendors.
