- The last changes you make online to your elections as of the close of the enrollment period will be considered your 2021 elections — regardless if you click “Complete Enrollment.”
Submitting documents for dependent coverage
- If you newly enroll a dependent in your medical, dental or vision coverage, you must submit the required documentation to verify they are eligible by the Annual Enrollment deadline found in BenefitsLink. For new hires, you have 60 days from the initial date you add your dependent(s).
- Upload to BenefitsLink (preferred): Log in to
se-benefitslink.com> click on Verify My Dependents. 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 names, SESA ID and phone number.
- Allow up to 2 weeks for your dependent documents to be reviewed. If you don’t submit acceptable documents, your dependent(s) won’t be covered.

If you and your spouse or domestic partner both work at Schneider Electric…
- Avoid the working spouse/domestic partner fee: If your spouse or domestic partner is also a Schneider Electric employee eligible under the Schneider Electric Benefits Program for U.S. Employees, you may each want to enroll in single coverage (or one enrolls in single coverage and the other in employee plus children coverage if you have children who need medical coverage) to avoid the $75 per month working spouse/domestic partner fee.
If you choose to cover your spouse/domestic partner as your dependent on your benefit coverage, he/she must decline his/her own coverage as an employee, and you will incur the $75 per month working spouse/domestic partner fee.
- Enrolling children: If you both choose to enroll in medical, dental or vision coverage as employees, only one of you may cover your dependent child(ren).
- Life insurance coverage: You may not purchase life insurance for your spouse or domestic partner if he/she also works at Schneider Electric. Only one of you may purchase life insurance for your child(ren).
If you and your child both work at Schneider Electric…
- If your child is under the age of 26, you may cover him or her under your medical, dental and vision coverage or they may enroll in coverage for themselves, but the child cannot be enrolled as both an employee and child under the plans.
- For life insurance, your child cannot be enrolled in both Basic Life as an employee and Child Life as a child; therefore, in this case you may not enroll your child in Child Life.
Health Care FSA in 2020 and CDHP + HSA in 2021?
If you elected a Health Care FSA in 2020 and enroll in a CDHP + HSA option for 2021, the balance in your FSA must be zero by December 31, 2020 for HSA contributions to begin in January. Otherwise, neither you nor the Company can contribute to your HSA until April 2021.
