Voluntary Benefits (Non-Medical) Enrollment
You can enroll in your Voluntary Benefits (non-Medical) one of two ways:
Online with Totem Tools
Use the "First Time User" Link. You will be prompted to enter your Social Security Number and Date of Birth. The system will identify you by these credentials and allow you to create a Password. You will then return to the login screen. Once logged in, scroll down and click “Begin Event."
After you have completed your elections, you will receive a confirmation statement for your voluntary elections.
Please use the Resources page and the individual product pages which contain detailed information about your benefits. In addition to the information on this website, you may contact the Benefits Service Center via phone at (855) 481-1489 at any time during the year for benefit questions.
No enrollment changes are allowed to your benefits during the plan year, except in the case of a Qualifying Life Event.
Qualifying life events that can result in changes to your benefit coverage include the following:
Qualifying Life Events (Medical):
If you have a qualifying life event, notify State Health Benefit Plan (SHBP) of the event as soon as possible by calling them at 800-610-1863 or process your changes on the enrollment portal. You must also provide the necessary supporting documentation to them.
Please refer to the State Health Benefit Plan Decision Guide for additional details regarding qualifying life events.
Qualifying Life Events (Non-Medical):
If you have a qualifying life event, notify the Benefits Service Center of the event and your new elections. You must also provide the necessary supporting documentation to the Benefits Service Center via fax at 866-597-2202 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org within 31 days of the change. If you do not do so within 31 days, you must wait until the next open enrollment period to make any benefit plan changes.
