What Is a Life Event?

What Is a Life Event?

Life happens and when it does, you should evaluate your benefit elections to make sure they meet the needs of you and your family. This page addresses some common "qualified life events," as defined by the IRS. Click the life event on this page that relates to your situation to learn what benefits are available to you and how they may change, so you can optimize your Robert Half coverage.

A qualified life event allows you to make changes to your benefits, though any changes must be consistent with the event. In most cases, you must make any eligible changes within 30 days of the event.
