Dependent documentation

If you are enrolling a dependent (spouse, same-sex domestic partner, or a child) who has never been covered under your IU-sponsored health plan, you must submit copies of supporting documentation.

Without documentation, dependent coverage will be canceled back to the initial date of coverage. Information regarding which dependents are eligible for coverage can be found online at hr.iu.edu/benefits/needknow.html

After submitting your online benefit elections, information on which documents are required and where to submit them will be emailed to you. Note that same-sex domestic partners and same-sex spouses cannot be added through the online enrollment process. Contact University Human Resources at or 812-855-1286 for help enrolling.
