An employee has 30 days beginning with the effective date of the status change to make changes to their benefits. This status change will affect benefits as follows:

Health Insurance

  • Employees may elect to cover themselves, their spouse and any eligible dependent children by completing the form below. Coverage is available either on the first of the first month following the status change date, or the first of the second month following the status change date. Premiums are deducted on a pre-tax basis and are deducted one month prior to the effective date of coverage. If necessary, the system will catch up the employee’s premium by deducting the needed amount from their first available paycheck. Depending on the requested start date and the current payroll schedule, this may be as much as two months’ premiums paid from one paycheck so employees are encouraged to plan accordingly.

Deductions are taken on a post-tax basis, and the coverage is effective the first of the second month following the status change.
