Citi Benefits Handbook
When You Can Enroll Your Domestic Partner
You can enroll your domestic/civil union partner and his or her eligible children in Citi medical, dental, vision and spending account benefits during Annual Enrollment (for coverage effective January 1 of the following year) or within 31 days of a qualified change in status. However, due to COVID-19, important guidelines have been issued that temporarily extend deadlines and allow for mid-year benefit changes. At Citi, you and your dependents have a mid-year opportunity to adjust your current 2020 medical, dental, vision, HCSA, LPSA and/or DCSA without needing to experience a qualified change in status. See "Changing Your Coverage" for more information.
Examples of qualifying events that will allow you to enroll your domestic partner and his or her eligible children during the plan year are:
  • Submitting your registration (for domestic/civil union partnership) or certifying your domestic partnership by submitting the Domestic Partner Coverage Forms;
  • The birth or adoption of a child; and
  • Your domestic/civil union partner's loss of benefits coverage in another employer's plan.
You must speak with a Citi Benefits Center representative to request the Domestic Partner Coverage Forms, if applicable. See the For More Information section for detailed instructions, including TDD and international assistance.
