Life Events

During the course of your MIT career, you are likely to experience many changes in your life outside of work. These events can have a corresponding impact on your MIT benefits.

You can update or change your benefits within 31 days of a qualifying life event. Examples of qualifying life events include the birth or adoption of a dependent, marriage, divorce, retirement, or a death in the family. Please note, you may only make changes to benefits directly affected by the qualified life event. Explore the sections below to learn how various life events may affect your benefits.
