Changing Your Benefits

Changing Your Benefits During the Year

Generally, you can change your benefits only during an annual enrollment period.

You may be able to change some aspects of your coverage before the next enrollment period if you experience a qualified life event, such as marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of a child, etc. Any change in benefits must be consistent with the life event change. For example, if you get married, you can add your spouse to your medical coverage, but you cannot elect a different medical option.

If you want to make a change to your benefits, visit the Pearson Employee Portal within 31 days of the life event. If the change is not made within the 31-day period, you will have to wait until the next annual enrollment.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Review each screen for important notes, your available options and costs, and to make your elections.
    • Note: All coverage options for dependents (including medical, dental, vision and/or life insurance) must be designated for each dependent.
  • Review the final screen which summarizes all the elections you have made along with their costs.
  • When you have completed your enrollment, click the Logout link. Be sure to close your browser once you have reached the Logout screen.
