MMC Benefits Handbook
Getting Married
If you get married, you may need to review and compare the benefit plans that are available to you. On this page you will find information about benefits coverage and election changes that may be helpful to you, as an eligible employee, and your new spouse (including marriage to your previous domestic partner).
Changing Your Benefits
The IRS allows you to pay for certain benefits on a before-tax basis providing you with a tax savings on the cost of coverage. In return for this tax savings, the IRS restricts your ability to make changes to before-tax benefits.
Your before-tax benefit elections must remain in effect throughout the calendar year unless you have a qualified family status change that necessitates a coverage change.
