Dependents

Who can I add to my insurance coverage?

Who cannot be added to my insurance?


Non-married partner Girlfriend / boyfriend Child of non-married partner (if you are not listed on the birth certificate or paying child support on) Parent Siblings **Anyone other than spouse, child, stepchild, adopted child, child for whom you have guardianship




What if I do not know my dependents Social Security Number?


This is a required field, so it is best to save your benefit changes without confirming. Gather the required SSN and enter it into the system. Once the SSN is entered, complete the enrollment, and confirm the changes. Benefit coverage is reported to the IRS on the 1095C form. It is important that the SSN be correct. DO NOT ENTER AN INCORRECT SSN and DO NOT ENTER THE SAME SSN FOR ALL OF YOUR DEPENDENTS.




Why does it ask if my dependent is a full-time student?


Supplemental Child life coverage ends at age 19, unless the child is a full-time student and financially dependent upon you. If this box is not checked, and the child is 19 or older, you will not be able to enroll the child in Supplemental Child Life Coverage. (Please note that the Insurance company will require proof of financial dependency before paying any claims.)




The benefit confirmation page says my dependent's coverage is pending documentation, what does that mean?


Caravan uses a Dependent Verification System. You will be prompted to upload proof that the dependent is your dependent.




What documents are required to verify my spouse?


A copy of your marriage license or a copy of your Federal 1040 that shows your spouse as a dependent




What documents are required to verify my child/stepchild?


A copy of the child’s birth certificate showing you or your spouse as the parent, legal adoption documentation, child support order (must come direct from the court) or legal guardianship documents




How do I upload documents for dependent verification?


You will have to upload documents through one of the following means:

1. After confirming benefits, the option to Upload now will pop up through the system.

2. You will receive additional instructions by mail.

Confirmation

What do I do if am unable to confirm the benefits?


Be sure that...

1. You have primary beneficiary(ies) that equal 100%.

2. Each benefit tile has been reviewed and confirmed. Go back and select the first tile (Medical) and confirm Continue to review/confirm each item.




I already confirmed my benefits. Can I make a change?


Yes, if the change is made before 3/7/2021. You will need to confirm each benefit tile again and get another confirmation number.





General

What if I do not have any changes to make?


Your benefits will remain the same. Caravan still recommends reviewing your current benefits and reviewing your beneficiary on file.




Why is the Annual Enrollment Event closed and not allowing me to make changes to my benefits?


Note: The enrollment period opens 2/15/21 and closes 3/7/2021.

If you are unable to update your benefits within the Annual enrollment dates of 2/15/21-3/7/21, please call the benefits office at 989-484-9789.




Why can I only make changes once a year?


The rule is due to regulatory compliance for group health plans. Therefore, you can only make changes once a year, unless you have a Qualifying Life event such as marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of a child, loss of other coverage, or gain of other coverage. (Go to myadp.com -> Benefits -> Report Qualifying Change).




What if I need to make changes after Annual Enrollment ends?


Go to myadp.com -> Benefits -> Report Qualifying Change. Please note proof of the qualifying change will be required. You will be prompted to upload the documentation.

  • Bi-weekly pay group = 4/23/2021
  • Weekly pay group= 4/9/2021





Life Insurance

I did not choose to enroll in this coverage, why is it listed?


This is a company paid benefit and eligible employees are automatically enrolled.




Why can I not change the coverage amount of the Basic Life Insurance?


This is a company paid benefit and eligible employees are automatically enrolled and the amount is based on your union contract or non-union policy. You can add additional coverage by enrolling in the Supplemental Coverage.




I do not see a beneficiary listed, but I filled out a form year ago. Why is it not showing up on MYADP.COM?


This means you have not updated or reviewed your beneficiary in the last 4 years, please add a beneficiary.

A beneficiary is required to complete your enrollment. You can list a charity (example: local Church), a trust, an estate, or any person you choose (example: neighbor, friend, pastor).




I want my life insurance split between family members. How do I do that?


If all the family members are already listed as dependents, select Update Allocations and each dependent will pop up. Under the primary beneficiary column, enter the percentage for each person to receive. Please note it must equal 100%. For example, if you wish to have fifty percent of the life insurance go to your spouse and the remaining fifty percent divided among your 2 children, it will look like this: SPOUSE = 50%, CHILD A = 25% AND CHILD B = 25% TOTAL ALLOCATION= 100%

I already entered a beneficiary for BASIC LIFE & ADD. Why do I have to enter it again?


Your Supplemental coverage is a separate policy and requires a separate beneficiary designation. Your beneficiary for the Supplemental coverage does not have to be the same as the BASIC LIFE & ADD.
