If you have a qualifying event and you need to add/drop or change your level of coverage, you will need to go to the NDPERS Member Self Service Site. All of your changes must be made through this site. In order to log onto the site, you will need your NDPERS Member Identification Number (this is different from number on your health insurance card). For those of you who already participate in NDPERS Defined Benefit Plan (Pension) and/or NDPERS Health Insurance, you would have been issued a number when you first enrolled. If you do not know your number, please contact Human Resources at 241-1321 or e-mail the address listed below to request your number.
