The College provides a comprehensive insurance program for regular (not temporary or seasonal) staff. To be eligible for full-time benefits, employees must be a regular employee scheduled and expected to have 30 or more hours of service per week or average 30 or more hours of service per week over a designated period of time. Insurance becomes effective the first day of the month following the end of a 30-day wait period. The 30-day wait period begins on the first day of employment.

To be eligible for part-time benefits, employees must be a regular employee and expected to have 20 to 29 hours of service per week. Employees must also have accrued at least 440 cumulative hours of service since their original hire date. After the service requirement has been met, insurance coverage becomes effective the first day of the month following a 30-day waiting period.

Staff may also elect coverage for their dependents on a cost sharing basis. The staff member’s share of the cost of individual and dependent insurance coverage is deducted through payroll withholding.
