When does your “Active” employee coverage terminate (health and optional insurances)?

  • End of Employment Month
    • Classified employee – work or in a paid leave status less than 80 hours in final month of employment
    • Unclassified employee – work or in a paid leave status less than ½ of the available hours in the month (ranges from 80 to 92 hours depending on the month)

      Example: Employee works 40 hours in June, last month of employment. Benefits terminate June 30th.

  • End of Month After Employment Terminates
    • Classified employee – work or in a paid leave status at least 80 hours in the final month of employment
    • Unclassified employee – work or in a paid leave status at least ½ of the available hours in the final month of employment

      Example: Employee works 88 hours in June, last month of employment. Benefits terminate July 31st. (June has 21 work days: 21 days * 8 hours = 168 available hours * ½ = 84 hours required for Unclassified employees)
