Qualified Medical Child Support Order

Assurant will honor a Qualified Medical Child Support Order relating to provisions for child support, alimony payments, or marital, domestic partnership or civil union property rights that may require you to provide medical coverage to an eligible child. If Assurant receives such an order, you will be notified of how it will be handled with respect to your benefits.

Dependent Eligibility Verification

At Assurant, we value our employees' wellbeing and strive to provide you and your family members with market-competitive and affordable health care coverage. An important component of controlling health care costs is ensuring that only eligible dependents are enrolled in Assurant's benefit plans. If you elect coverage for your dependents under the health plan or dental plan, you'll be required to verify your dependents’ eligibility. After your enrollment, you’ll receive both a mailing at your home address and an email to your Assurant email from Mercer, the benefits eligibility vendor that Assurant's working with to administer this process. Please read the materials you receive carefully and provide all requested documents by the deadline indicated in the correspondence. If you don't provide the required documentation by the deadline, your dependents will be removed from coverage.
