Enrolling dependents and dependent verification

If you are enrolling dependents in your medical, vision and/or dental plans, you are required to provide proof of your dependent’s eligibility with a document that shows they are dependents. All dependents must be verified during the SEBB Program’s first annual open enrollment (October 1 through November 15, 2019), before they can be enrolled under your coverage, even if you have already verified their eligibility with your employer.

You can upload dependent verification documents in SEBB my Account, or provide documents directly to your payroll office.

Once you have uploaded your documents, please check SEBB my Account to ensure they have been accepted.

Need more information to make an informed decision?

Visit the virtual benefits fair to learn more about each of the plans offered.  You can also access ALEX, the online interactive benefits advisor. ALEX will help you understand your benefits and guide you through choosing your medical, dental and vision plans or suggest plans for you to consider.

We have received many questions regarding Providence Health and Premera, please see the letter from Providence.

What if I’m eligible for SEBB benefits both as an employee and as a dependent?

You cannot enroll in two SEBB accounts at the same time. If you are an eligible employee and are also eligible as a dependent under your spouse’s, state-registered domestic partner’s, or parent’s account, you may choose one of these options:

  • Waive your enrollment in SEBB medical and be enrolled in medical under your spouse’s, state-registered domestic partner’s, or parent’s SEBB account. You must still enroll in dental, vision, basic life insurance and AD&D insurance, and basic LTD insurance under your own account.
  • Enroll in medical under your own SEBB account.

Dual enrollment is not allowed under the SEBB rules for you, your spouse or dependents. However one of you can waive your medical coverage and enroll on the other’s account.  Doing that does not incur the spouse or state-registered domestic partner coverage surcharge.
