You may enroll your child immediately after birth or adoption by submitting the documentation to the HR Service Center. Don’t wait. You must enroll your newborn child within 60 days from the child’s date of birth. As it is very rare that the birth certificate or Social Security Number is made available immediately, you have 6 months from the date of birth to provide this information to the HR Service Center.
Please note that if you fail to submit the Social Security Number or verification of the birth certificate timely, the child will be removed from benefit coverage retroactively to the date of enrollment.
