New hire enrollment period

As a new hire, you have 31 days from your first day of work to enroll in health plans and make other benefit elections. This enrollment window is very important, as you won’t have another opportunity to enroll or make changes to benefits until the annual open enrollment period or when you experience a qualifying life event.
