If any of these apply, please complete the Change in Status Election form, and the Aetna Enrollment application if you plan to enroll in the TRS ActiveCare medical plan. If you do not plan to enroll in the medical plan, only the Change in Status form is required. Forms must be completed and submitted to the Benefits office within 31 days of the qualifying life event. If not received within 31 days, your next opportunity to make changes will be during the next open enrollment period.
