Benefit fairs continue in advance of SEBB open enrollment

desk-doctor-health-48604.jpgWe are quickly approaching the SEBB benefits open enrollment window. Benefits begin January 1, 2020, but enrollment is within a 45-day enrollment window, October 1 through November 15, 2019 (at 5 p.m.). Note: If you enroll online yourself you have until November 15 at 5 p.m.; if you turn in paper forms to our Payroll Office you have until November 8 at 5 p.m. to turn in all forms and dependent verifications. Leading up to this window, we are holding mini-benefits fairs at each school, and the state Health Care Authority is holding a regionwide benefits fair.

Mini-benefit fairs: These are held at each school site. Any district employee can attend any fair. At these fairs Amy McGuire will share information on enrolling in SEBB, dependent verification, waving coverage and the cost of not waiving benefits if this is your intent. Many fairs have already taken place, but there are a few still upcoming. You are welcome to attend multiple fairs. These include:

  • 9-30: Pioneer at 3:30 p.m.
  • 10-1: Garfield at 3:30 p.m.
  • 10-2: Washington at 3:15 p.m.
  • 10-3: Hansen at 3:15 p.m.
  • 10-7: Marshall at 3 p.m.

Health Care Authority benefits fair:  October 2, 4-8 p.m. at South Puget Sound Community College, 2011 Mottman Rd. S.W., Student Union Building (SUB). The Health Care Authority benefit fair will include more about health plans and supplemental insurance options.
