Proof of Dependent Eligibility required

If you add any dependents currently not on County benefit plans (spouse, registered domestic partner and/or dependent children) during Open Enrollment, the County of Santa Barbara requires that you verify their eligibility.

Proof of dependent eligibility will require direct submission to SisCo no later than November 16, 2019.  The County has partnered with SisCo, an affiliate of Benefit Coordinators Corporation to assist us in the verification of the dependent spouse and/or children you have requested to be enrolled in the plan(s).  Submission of documents directly to SisCo can be faxed to (563) 587-6721 or mailed (takes 7-10 days) to:  SisCo Benefits 800 Main Street, PO Box 389, Dubuque, IA 52004-0389.  If you have questions contact a SisCo representative at (800) 457-4726 ext 5076.
