Spouse Changing Jobs

If your spouse gets a new job, he/she may also be eligible for benefit coverage with their new employer. If your spouse loses employer coverage or is no longer employed, you may need to add him/her to your Marathon Oil benefits. Benefit changes must be made within 31 days of the date of the event.

If You Need to Change… Then You Need to…

Health, Dental, or Vision coverage

  • Review your benefits to determine if you need to add or remove your spouse or dependents from coverage.
  • Compare coverage, deductibles, coinsurance/co-payments, monthly contributions, additional charges/penalties such as late cancellation charges, and determine how benefits are coordinated.
  • If you and your spouse are both employed by Marathon Oil, be aware that only one of you can insure eligible children, and that you cannot be a member and a dependent of the same plan.
  • To make benefit changes, complete the Benefit Change Form within 31 days of the date of your spouse’s change in employment, and fax it to 713-513-4495, or mail it to the Marathon Oil Benefits Department at Health & Welfare Benefits, 5555 San Felipe Street, Houston, TX 77056.
