Family Status Changes

Family status changes including marriage, divorce, birth, adoption, death of a spouse/child, marriage of a dependent child, etc., must be reported to the Human Resources Department no later than 30 days after the event.  Proper notification ensures accurate enrollment in benefit plans for new spouse/baby; prompt removal of those you no longer wish to cover; and correct withholding from your paycheck for the associated plan type (e.g., Single, Two, Family).  Contact Ms. Kimberly Hongisto, Benefits Assistant, at khongist@nmu.edu or phone x2470 with questions.
