Enrolling or Changing Your Plan

Benton County employees have a 30-day window from their date of hire to enroll for dental insurance. Employees also have a 30-day window from the date of a qualifying life event to change their dental policy.

Life Events

Qualifying life events include:

  • A change in your marital status (marriage, divorce, or legal separation)
  • Adding a dependent (birth or adoption of a child)
  • If you or a covered dependent lose or gain eligibility for coverage
  • The death of a covered dependent

Please contact Human Resources within 30 days if a qualifying event takes place and you'd like to make changes to your dental policy. If the 30-day deadline is missed, changes cannot be made until open enrollment or another qualifying life event takes place.

Open Enrollment

Employees can modify their dental plan during spring open enrollment each year.
