Work Life Events

When Changes Affect Your Employment or Benefits

Whether it's marriage, the birth of a new baby, medical leave, marriage, divorce or retirement, life involves change. Often life events can affect your benefits. Certain changes must be reported to Human Resources as a result of that event especially to assure timely benefits plan coverage or accurate paycheck information. We've put together a To Do checklist of resources for you related to these events.

The terms and conditions of employment (including benefits) often differ by bargaining agreement. If you do not know what union represents your position, see What's my bargaining unit? for instructions on how to determine that. Undergraduate student employees should contact the Registrar’s Office for information about your benefits and University Health Services for information about your health insurance.
