An important rule for Section 125 plans is that you cannot change your election choice to participate during the calendar year unless you or your dependent(s) experience a Qualifying Life Event (QLE). Dependents are defined as listed in the Summary Plan Description of your medical plan. Elections that are not eligible to be changed without a QLE include medical, dental, vision, cancer, Health Care Flexible Spending Account (HCFSA) and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (DCFSA).
