work insurance issues

My work was having open enrollment for insurance and i was eligible.  I wanted to sign up for their dental plan since i need it and can afford it again. I assumed it was being taken care of since i filled out the form and turned it in the same day. I have been patiently awaiting the cards in the mail but nothing!....

I ask my boss today what happened and she says she turned the paper work in1 day late and missed the deadline.

Now i have to wait a whole 'nother year to get insurance? this is ridiculous
What can I do?

I shouldn't have to suffer because my boss is an idiot

Depending on the size of the company you work for, they may have a benefit person who manages the benefit programs.  Find out who it is and plead your case with that person, find out whom your boss was suppose to turn the form into and contact them directly if at all possible.

Hope this helps,

Do you have copies of the signed dated application? If so, definitely go to the Big boss! And, state the verbal your boss gave you. You did what you had to do - you turned in the paper in a timely fashion, and they did not do their part.

Look them in the eye and ask them "What are you going to do since you did not submit this ontime?"
