Important Notice Regarding Ex-Spouses on your Health/Dental Insurances
If you have your spouse on your Health and/or Dental Insurances, and you get divorced, you must notify HR/Benefits within 30 days of the Divorce. The ex-spouse cannot remain on your health and dental insurances once they are no longer your legal dependent.
Once you receive your Divorce Decree, send HR/Benefits a copy of the "Notice of Decision". Your ex-spouse must be removed from your health and dental insurances effective midnight on the last day of the month that your divorce was finalized. Your ex-spouse will be offered Cobra continuation of coverage rights.
If you do not notify HR/Benefits of your Divorce in a timely manner, the City does reserve the right to recoup any claims paid on behalf of the ex-spouse during the period they were no longer eligible to be on your health and/or dental insurances.
If you are a Fire/Police Retiree, you must also notify the New Hampshire Retirement System.
