Birth or Adoption
Congratulations! This is an exciting and rewarding time for you, here is a checklist of the benefit changes you might want to consider and resources that VMware provides.
Changes and elections for most of the VMware benefit plans are made at annual enrollment; however, birth or adoption is considered a qualified life event. You can make the following changes within 40 days of the date of the qualified life event.
- Add your child to your Medical and Dental plans via MyLife [VMware network access required].
- Update beneficiary information with your Life Insurance plan via MyLife [VMware network access required].
If you do not make benefit changes within 40 days of the birth or adoption of your child, your next opportunity to modify benefits is Open Enrollment on 1 April.
Planning time away from work to care for and bond with your child is an important consideration. There are a number of leave options available to you, be sure to review the details for eligibility requirements:
