  • How to enroll

    Enrolling in your benefits is easy through the Workday system. Workday allows you to select your health, life, and disability benefits online. You can use the system during open enrollment, or if you need to make a change to your benefits. Workday can be found in the quicklinks section of MyIvy

    Your share of the benefit costs will be deducted from your pay in equal amounts in the applicable pay periods in a program year.  The College does not prorate benefit deductions.

    Dependent Eligibility

    Ivy Tech has adopted the Working Spouse Rule which restricts health and dental coverage when a spouse has employer-sponsored, credible coverage available.  Additionally, proof of dependent status is required for all dependents covered under Ivy Tech's health, dental, and vision plans.  Employees must complete the Dependent Eligibility form in order to add dependents to the plans.  More information can be found here.

    Qualifying Life Events

    It is important to make informed choices with your benefit selections.  Changing coverage during the year is limited to Qualifying Life Events as defined by IRS code Section 125.  The rules do not allow for enrollment, additions, changes or cancellations to most plans without a Qualifying Life Event.  More information can be found here
