What Happens if the 31-day Window to Register a Life Event is Missed?

If you do not apply for benefits for yourself or an eligible dependant during the 31-day window, you are considered to be ‘a late entrant'. This means that you will be required to complete an Application for Insurance and Evidence of Insurability, which determines proof of good health. Coverage may be denied for you and/or your dependant.
