Dependent Verification: In accordance with healthcare reform laws, if you choose to cover any dependents, you must provide supporting documents (e.g., birth certificate, marriage certificate, legal guardianship paperwork, etc.) for each of your dependents before your coverage will be approved. Please follow the instructions below:

1:  Access the Message Center on the Benefitsolver website.  
2:  The message should be addressed to Keisha Washington ([email protected]).
3:  In the subject line select document required. 
4:  Upload your document.
5:  At the bottom of the email it will give you the option to send the email using Message Center Only.  Choose this option as it is secure and does not send your information outside of the Benefitsolver system.  
6: Select send.

The Benefitsolver system will send Keisha Washington an email that she has a message in the Message Center.  When she logs on she will be able to access your message and attached document.   Upon receipt, the Benefits team will review your documents. If there are any questions regarding your supporting documents, a member of the Benefits team will contact you. If you do not hear from the Benefits team, your transaction will be approved, and you will see the new deduction on your next pay check. Non-receipt of dependent verification documentation will result in loss of benefits for your dependents, and you will not be allowed to enroll them until open enrollment, which is normally held in August.
