Employee Benefits


Benefit eligibility and the type of benefit programs you receive are based on the type of hire appointment and position. Your initial hire letter will advise you on the type of benefits you are eligible to receive. You should also receive a benefit packet with your appointment letter. For specific benefit programs, please refer to the HR website and click on Employee Benefits. For example, if you are an Administrative Support Assistant I, your position is covered by Unit 7, Clerical/Admin Support; refer to your appointment letter. See Benefit Summary by Employee Group.

Much of the information is available online. If you still have questions, and are a member of staff or management employee, contact Human Resources, if you are a member of Faculty contact Faculty Affairs.

Open Enrollment

The open enrollment period for CalPERS health, CSU dental, Dependent Care Reimbursement Account (DCRA), Health Care Reimbursement Account (HCRA), FlexCash, and Tax Advantage Premium (TAPP) plans is usually between September 15 and October 15 each year. The effective date for all changes made during open enrollment will be January 1 of the following year. To assist employees with open enrollment choices, CalPERS mails a health plan enrollment statement to each member enrolled in a CalPERS health plan. In accordance with the health plan statement, CalPERS also has implemented a Web-based (Pacific Business Group on Health (PBGH)) "Health Plan Chooser" tool. This tool allows members to view health plans in side-by-side comparisons, and rank them based on personal references. This tool can be accessed at the following URL:http://calpers.chooser.pbgh.org/wizard.asp More information is available on the Employee Benefits | Health Care | Medical page.

Employees who wish to change their benefit elections during open enrollment should complete a Benefits Information Worksheet and submit it to Human Resources (Contact Info). The insurance enrollment worksheet is available at the Human Resources office (Location). Once the worksheet has been submitted to Human Resources, enrollment documents will be prepared and you will be contacted by telephone and asked to sign the documents in Human Resources office (Location). If you have not received a call from HR within two weeks after submitting your worksheet, please call Human Resources (Contact Info) to confirm that your worksheet was received.
