Enrolling and Making Changes in Benefits Policy
Duke provides benefits to eligible university and health system staff and their eligible dependents. Several of the benefit programs require staff to enroll within a specified period of time or wait to make changes until the annual open enrollment period. There are deadlines associated with making changes to benefits based on three (3) different events: (1) during the annual open enrollment period, (2) enrolling in benefits as a newly eligible staff member and (3) based on changes to a staff members’ family or employment circumstances (referred to as "qualifying life event"). Enrollment in other benefits may occur throughout the year based upon eligibility.
