WHEN COVERAGE BECOMES EFFECTIVE

If you are a new Employee, or if you previously lost eligibility, you become eligible for Employee coverage on the first day of the fifth month of a period that begins with three continuous months during which you accumulate the minimum hours for the level that you have selected, so long as you are credited with at least 25 hours in the first month.

The following examples reflect how eligibility for coverage is determined

* Effective work month of October 2016 and eligibility month of January 1, 2017 (H&W rate of $8.05)

* If you work under other rates or a combination of rates, the total dollars contributed per month will determine your eligibility.

Level A Level B Level C
Benefit Credits/Hours Needed 140 120 100
*Hours Needed x Hourly Contribution (Primary) Rate of $8.05 1,127 966 805
Maximum Hour Bank You Could Earn 4,508 3,864 3,220
 

* Effective work month of October 2016 and eligibility month of January 1, 2017 (H&W rate of $8.05)

 

 

The contribution rate for non-bargaining employees is established by the Board of Trustees and is subject to the change from time to time.
