If you’re a new employee and are adding dependents to health coverage, you must complete the dependent eligibility verification. If you add a dependent to health coverage during Summer or Fall Enrollment or due to a qualifying life event (QLE), you must provide proof to Alight Solutions (our third-party administrator, formerly known as Aon Hewitt) that the dependent is eligible for coverage.
After ERS processes your dependent's enrollment in coverage, Alight will contact you to get copies of documents proving your dependents are eligible. Alight will not accept a verification document dated after you enrolled the dependent, even if the date on the document is before the coverage start date. (For example, if you enroll a new spouse on February 7, 2018 – for coverage to start on March 1, 2018 – and submit a marriage license dated February 10, 2018, Alight will not accept that marriage license as document as proof of eligibility. You would have to re-enroll the new spouse on or after February 10.)
