Accessing the Qualifying Event Module
Any time during the year, you can login to BenTek and report a qualifying event. A qualifying event is a life status change that allows you to make any applicable new benefit election or change a current benefit election. Common examples of qualifying events include marriage, divorce, birth of a child, or when a spouse loses coverage with another employer.
To access the Qualifying Event feature, select the Qualifying Event option from the Employee Benefits Center module within the navigation menu located at the top of your screen.
Selecting Qualifying Event will bring you to the Qualifying Event (QE) Pending List. This page displays the status of any previously reported qualifying event and corresponding requested election changes. Your requested benefit election changes will be pended until your group’s Benefits Administrator receives supporting documentation confirming the life status change (i.e. marriage license, divorce decree, birth certificate, etc.).
Please note that you may only report one qualifying event at a time.
If you have no pending qualifying events, click the Plus icon to proceed to the next step.
You can return to the Qualifying Event module at any time to check the status of any requested benefit election change pursuant to your reporting of a qualifying event. You can review your pending benefit elections by clicking on the Edit icon.
