Domestic Partnership
All regular benefits-eligible employees are eligible for domestic partner health insurance (see Affidavit of Domestic Partnership for Benefits Eligibility Form (pdf)).

Domestic partner enrollments must occur during the annual open enrollment period.

Beneficiary
It is important to keep a record of your beneficiary designations and to update them whenever your circumstances change. Keep a copy of all beneficiary designations and review them periodically. You may change your beneficiary designations at any time.
