Leave of Absence

When you have a leave of absence, you can make certain corresponding changes to your insurance benefits for yourself, your spouse, and dependent children through age 26. You will receive a packet of information from SEGIP that includes your Personal Enrollment Form if you wish to cancel any or all of your benefits.

What are the risks of canceling my coverage while on leave?

Any benefits or insurance policies that are canceled while on a leave of absence cannot be reinstated until you return to work. Canceling your coverages may alter your ability to participate in Open Enrollment. Also, if you cancel coverages while on leave prior to retirement, you cannot make retiree continuation elections on any canceled coverages.  
Disclaimer: This list is meant to cover some of the most common risks. It does not cover all risks. One’s inability to predict an outcome is not grounds to reinstate coverage.
