In the Effective Date field enter the same date as entered for the employee; the first date of the payroll in which you want the deduction to be effective. This depends on each agency’s pay cycle.
Note: If this dependent is a NEWBORN, enter the date of birth in the Effective Date field. This will give immediate coverage information (medical, prescription, etc.) for a NEWBORN.
Note: If the employee is not enrolled in the plan to which you are trying to attach a dependent/beneficiary, you will receive an error message. Either ensure you have the correct code for the plan in which the employee is enrolled, or make sure the employee is actually enrolled in the plan to which you are trying to attach dependents/beneficiaries (Click Form, Enrollment Overrid to review the employee's Plan ID. Click Cancel to return to the Attach Dependent/Beneficiary to Plan window.)
