Read Through the Information Below and be Sure to Follow Up

Nokia’s has a web site BenefitAnswersPlus* that has answers to a lot of your questions:

“The death of your spouse or your covered child is a qualified change in status. The death of your domestic partner or your partner’s child is also considered a change in status. Therefore, you can make certain changes to your health and insurance coverage. The coverage changes must be consistent with your change in status. 

To make changes to your current coverage, you must speak with a Benefits Center Representative, by calling the Nokia Benefits Resource Center at 1-888-232-4111, between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday.”
