If you are recently divorced or legally separated from your spouse, this qualifies as a qualifying life event and allows you to disenroll your former spouse from Yale's medical or dental coverage. Effective cancellation date will be at the end of the month that you are divorced or legally separated.

You must add this qualifying life event within 30 days of the date of your divorce or legal separation using the My Benefits website, which can be accessed through the University portal (www.yale.edu/portal). For instructions, please refer to the My Benefits: Adding a Life Event Quick Guide.

The following supporting documentation is required:

  • Legal separation agreement
  • Court signed divorce decree

If you have any questions, please contact the Employee Service Center at 203-432-5552.
