Congratulations! As you and your spouse or domestic partner embark on a new journey together, here’s 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, marriage or domestic partnership is considered a Qualified Life Event . You must make changes within 30 days of the date of the Qualified Life Event . If you do not meet this deadline, you must wait until the next annual enrollment. You are eligible to make the following changes:
- Enroll your spouse or domestic partner in your Medical Insurance  by updating the information in Workday  > Personal Information > Dependents [VMware network access required]
Updating Your Personal Information
- To update your preferred name, emergency contact and/or home address, log into Workday  [VMware network access required].
- For more information and detailed instructions, please visit the Workday  page [VMware network access required] on VMware Source.
- If you need to update your marital status and/or your legal name, you will need to contact HR Source  [VMware network access required].
Planning time away from work to care for and bond with your spouse or partner is an important consideration. Be sure to review the details for eligibility requirements:
- Annual Leave  (If you have entered into a Domestic Partnership)
- Marriage Leave
