Do you have questions about your eligibility? Read on to learn more about your eligibility as a Marvell employee or intern, and the requirements for dependents.
Active employees working at least 30 hours per week are eligible to enroll in the Marvell Benefits Program. Benefits begin upon your start date at Marvell.
Interns working at least 30 hours per week are eligible to enroll in the Marvell Benefits Program and are also eligible for Holiday pay and Sick Time. Interns may have restrictions enrolling dependents in Marvell's Benefits Program; please contact
Your eligible dependents may be enrolled for medical, dental and vision coverage as well as Supplemental Life and Voluntary AD&D Insurance. Eligible dependents are also able to receive Employee Assistance Program services. Coverage for your dependents will begin upon your date of hire or the date of the qualifying life event which makes a dependent eligible for benefits.
Eligible dependents generally include your:
A life partner joined in a marriage or civil union, including valid common-law marriages in a state that recognizes common-law marriages.
A person of either sex who has a committed relationship with an eligible Marvell employee may qualify as a domestic partner. The Marvell employee and domestic partner must:
- Live together (for at least 12 months)
- Not be related to a degree that would prohibit marriage in the state they live
- Both be at least 18 years of age
- Not be married or legally separated from anyone else and have not had another domestic partner within 12 months prior to enrolling for benefits
- Be financially responsible for each other
- Be each other's sole partner and intend to remain so indefinitely
If you select Domestic Partner coverage, any employee contributions for your Domestic Partner and/or your Domestic Partner's children will be deducted on an after-tax basis. In addition, the fair market value of coverage provided by your employer on behalf of your Domestic Partner and/or Domestic Partner's children will be considered taxable income to you. In some states, the amounts may not be subject to state income tax if the domestic partnership meets state criteria. This may amount to a significant increase in income taxes withheld from your paycheck. For more information and for the calculation based on your benefit selections, please email
Including natural or legally adopted children, children of your domestic partner, your stepchildren, or any children for whom you are a foster parent or legal guardian:

When You and Your Spouse Both Work for Marvell
If you and your spouse both work for Marvell, you may not enroll for dual coverage under the medical, dental, vision, life and/or AD&D plans. That is, neither one of you can be enrolled both as an employee and as a dependent. Your dependent children may be enrolled under either parent, but not both parents.
When You and Your Spouse/Domestic Partner Both Have Employer Provided Coverage
Most employer health care plans have limitations so that you would not receive full benefits under two plans. To see how Marvell plans coordinate with other plans, contact the Benefits Information Center or refer to the Summary Plan Descriptions (SPDs). You should compare all of your options and select the coverage that is best for you and your family.
