If you want to change your coverage because of a qualified work, family or eligible life status change, you must request that change within 30 days of the event. Changes are made only through Advocate Benefits Service Center at 800.775.4784 or online at advocatebenefits.com.

The change in coverageŚwhich must be consistent with the status changeŚwill generally take effect as of the date the status change occurred if you notify Advocate Benefits Service Center of the status change within 30 days of the event.

You must submit any required documents to support such change within 45 days of the event date. If you do not notify Advocate Benefits Service Center within 30 days of the event, but do so within 90 days of the event, the effective date of your coverage change will be as of the date you call. Generally, if you do not notify Advocate Benefits Service Center of the change within 90 days of the event, you will have to wait until the next annual enrollment period to change your coverage.
