Birth or Adoption
Congratulations! Bringing a new child into the family is an exciting time, and there’s a lot to think about. VMware provides some unique benefits and resources to help you through the process.
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 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 child in your Medical plan via MyLife [VMware network access required].
- Modify your Life Insurance and update beneficiary details via MyLife [VMware network access required].
- Review your statutory Retirement Plans and nomination details.
Planning time away from work to care for and bond with your child is an important consideration. There are many leave options available to you. Be sure to review the details for eligibility requirements for:
