    They will send you a large packet in the mail with everything you need to know, including numbers to call and enroll.

    Got my healthcare packet 6 weeks before my 1 year mark. It was about a 120 page book, a few pamphlets, and about a dozen supplemental pages. Basically if you don't have dependents and don't want extra life/disability insurance you don't even have to do anything it starts automatically.

    However if you have health issues I advise you to add the extra life insurance right away because if you don't sign up by your one year mark you will have to get a doctor to qualify you with whatever paperwork that entails.

    Remember you will be starting under a completely different healthcare plan than the previously mentioned.

    I thought it wasn't switching until January, not sure where I read that. He would be under the current healthcare plan for at least a few months the way I'm understanding it.
