All permanent full-time employees are eligible to enroll themselves and their dependents in the health benefit programs. New employees must sign up for health insurance within thirty days of their date of hire to participate. Most employees qualify if they are working 50% or more for the year but benefits vary by bargaining unit so employees should refer to the applicable union contract. Eligible dependents include lawful spouse or registered domestic partner, children under 26 years of age, stepchildren and legally adopted children. Open enrollment is in the fall each year.
Active and retired employees have the opportunity to move from one plan to another, change options, or change dependent status. Information will be posted on this web page during Open Enrollment. All questions about benefits and open enrollment should be directed to the Benefits Office.
