What do I do if I have or adopt a baby?

Health Insurance

If you have family coverage, you need to complete a form to add the child's name to your list of dependents within 60 days of the birth or adoption. If you do not have family coverage, you may change from self only to family coverage, or you may enroll in family coverage if you are not already enrolled, within 60 days of the birth or adoption. Enrollment forms are available in the Benefits Office, College Hall, Room 114 or e-mail benefits@gallaudet.edu. 

Please check Health Insurance for additional information.
