Details on the specific plan changes and options are found on the Open Enrollment webpage.
If you need to update benefits due to a qualifying change in status,

Enroll or make changes by completing The Hartford Enrollment Form.
Submit your completed Form to Benefits & Employee Wellness via Secure Document Upload or fax to 505-277-2278 within 60 Calendar Days of your newly benefits-eligible position or your Qualifying Change in Status Event.
Note: If you separate from employment, termination of coverage will occur.
If you enroll in UNM’s life insurance, there is an important step to ensure you’re making the most of this important coverage – choosing or updating a beneficiary. A beneficiary is the person who will receive the proceeds of your life insurance should you pass away. You can choose anyone as your beneficiary and change your designation at any time. And when you add or change a beneficiary online, your designation becomes effective immediately.
Examples of when to consider your beneficiary designation(s) are marriage, birth or adoption of a child, or divorce.
If your Life insurance coverage is ending and you would like to continue coverage under Portability and Conversion with The Hartford, you must return the completed Notice of Continuation form to The Hartford within 31 days after your group coverage terminates, or 15 days from the date the employer signs the form, whichever is later. (This period may be limited to 91 days after group coverage terminates.)
