(See sidebar for links)

Enroll or waive your Health & Protection coverage within 31 days of your date of hire.
Have your dependents’ Social Security numbers on hand.
Confirm your elections.

For your Health & Protection benefits, you will automatically receive an emailed confirmation statement and a confirmation statement will also be mailed to your home address on file for your records. If you find any errors, contact the Baker Hughes Benefits Center immediately. For the 401(k) Plan, you will receive a mailed confirmation of your first enrollment election.

If you don’t take action, you will be automatically enrolled in the following coverages:
  • Standard Medical Plan (Employee Only coverage)
  • Basic Life and AD&D Insurance
  • Short-Term and Core Long-Term Disability Protection
  • 401(k) Plan at a pre-tax contribution rate of 3% of your eligible pay with an automatic increase of 1% annually, invested in a Target Date Fund based on your estimated retirement age

You will not be able to make changes to your Health & Protection benefits until the next Annual Enrollment period, unless you experience a Qualified Status Change (like having a baby or getting married). You can change your 401(k) contribution at any time.
