Making Changes to Your Health Coverage

If you experience a qualifying life event — such as if your spouse loses his or her employer benefits, or if you have a baby or get married — you can make changes to your benefits coverage within 31 days of the event. Keep in mind that the changes must be related to your event. For example, if your spouse loses benefits coverage and you’re not currently enrolled in a Sonos medical plan, you can newly enroll yourself and any eligible dependents; if you are already enrolled in a Sonos medical plan, you can add your spouse to your current plan, but you cannot change the plan in which you are enrolled.
