Getting Married

Marriage is a life milestone that comes with a lot of changes, including your benefits options. You can make changes to certain benefits within 31 days of your marriage, otherwise you’ll need to wait until the next annual enrollment period.

You can add your spouse, children, and/or stepchildren to your benefits. In states that recognize common-law marriage, this event may include common-law unions.

Review the benefits information below to see your options after this life milestone.
