What if I want to add dependents to my medical/dental or vision coverage?
Enroll your dependent(s) at se-benefitslink.com and submit the required documents to verify they are eligible by 5 p.m. Central time on November 12, 2020. You can do this either of two ways:
- Upload to BenefitsLink (preferred) — Log in to
se-benefitslink.com> click Verify My Dependents tile. Upload your documents.
- Fax — Fax to PeopleLink at 859-372-2176. Include a cover sheet with the subject line “Dependent Documentation” along with your legal first and last name, SESA ID and phone number.

What if I'm not eligible for a Health Savings Account?
You can enroll in either the Buy-up CDHP (with no HSA) or the Core PPO option. Consider contributing to the Health Care FSA so you can pay for eligible out-of-pocket health care expenses with before-tax dollars.
To be eligible for an HSA, you must be enrolled in a CDHP medical plan option; and must be a U.S. citizen, Green Card holder or H1-B visa holder with a U.S. residential address.
You cannot be:
- Covered by any medical plan that is not a consumer-directed health plan, including your spouse’s or domestic partner’s plan;
- Covered under a general FSA through your spouse’s or domestic partner’s plan (however, you may participate in a Limited-use Health Care FSA specifically for dental and vision expenses);
- Claimed as a dependent on someone else’s taxes;
- Enrolled in Medicare (including retroactive Medicare coverage);
- Covered by TriCare, TriCare for Life, or Medicaid; or
- The recipient of VA benefits within the last three months unless you have a disability rating from the VA.
What if I cover a domestic partner or their child, and their tax status has changed?
Complete and submit the “Certification of Tax Dependency” form to PeopleLink by 5 p.m. Central time, November 12, 2020.
What if I want to increase my Supplemental Life or Spouse Life coverage, or enroll after waiving coverage in the past?
What if I have a change in family status between now and the end of 2020?
If you experience an eligible change in status — such as marriage or birth of a child — between now and the end of the year, you will have to ensure that both your 2020 and 2021 elections are updated at
NOTE: If your change in status occurs during the Annual Enrollment period and you wish to update your 2020 benefit elections, you must first complete your status change event for 2020 and then complete your 2021 Annual Enrollment elections.
