Opportunity to change some SEBB benefits ends July 31

Stethoscope with heart-shaped center designA reminder that the SEBB Program is offering a limited opportunity to make some changes to your SEBB benefits. (Normally, you would need to have a life event, like a birth or marriage, to make these changes mid-year.)

You have until July 31 to make the changes below.

  • Add an eligible dependent to your SEBB medical coverage. You must submit documents that prove your dependent’s eligibility. Dependents can be added only to medical coverage, not to dental or vision.
  • Enroll in medical coverage if you are currently enrolled only in dental and vision coverage.
  • Increase or decrease your 2020 Medical Flexible Spending Arrangement (FSA) or Dependent Care Assistance Program (DCAP) election amounts.
  • Enroll in a Medical FSA or DCAP for the rest of the calendar year (if you’re eligible for these benefits).

Changes are effective on August 1, 2020. Use SEBB My Account to enroll in medical coverage or add dependents no later than July 31. If you need help with navigation, SecureAccess Washington (SAW) registration, or document uploads, call 1-855-648-3100 (select option 7) from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, through July 31. Note: Because of weekly furloughs of state employees throughout the month of July, wait times may be longer than normal.

To enroll or change your Medical FSA or DCAP election, submit the SEBB COVID-19 Medical FSA & DCAP Change Form to your payroll or benefits office no later than July 31.
