You will find important information about your health and wellness benefits, and the tools you need to make decisions for you and your covered family members. Be sure to contact your department's benefits representative if you have questions.
Dependent Eligibility Verification Process:
To make sure all eligible dependents stay on City benefit plans, the City is extending the dependent verification deadline to August 29, 2014. Employees covering a spouse, a domestic partner, or children on City health plans have a one-time, four-week grace period to submit their documents. After August 29, the only way to pursue dependent verification will be through the Aon Hewitt claim appeals process.
If you are having any issues providing documentation, please call Aon Hewitt at 1-800-725-5810. If you prefer to talk with someone in a language other than English, you can also access Language Line services at that number. Representatives are available from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. Pacific Time, Monday through Friday.
Visit the City's Dependent Eligibility Verification web page for more information or to find previous communications. If you've already submitted your documents, thank you for getting them in on time!

On June 30, 2014, most state-registered, same-sex domestic partnerships will be converted to marriages. Learn more about how the ruling affects your tax status and City benefits.
