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 collective bargaining union contract. Eligible dependents include lawful spouse or registered domestic partner, children under 26 years of age, stepchildren and legally adopted children.
