When will my eligibility and coverage begin? Open Enrollment will be October 1 through November 15, 2019. All employees will need to elect benefits or waive medical coverage through SEBB during this time. Coverage will begin January 1, 2020.

Can I cover my family? Yes, you can get medical, dental and vision coverage for:

  • Your legal spouse or state-registered domestic partners.
  • Your children up to age 26, or children of any age with a disability who meet specified eligibility criteria.
