Employee Benefit Resources

Health Care

Medical plans, prescription, dental, and vision coverage vary based on your employee group. Upon enrollment of a medical plan, employees are automatically enrolled in prescription and hearing coverage.


Life and Disability Insurances

The State System enrolls all permanent employees in employer-paid life insurance. Additional life, accident, and long term disability insurances are available for purchase through payroll deductions

Retirement Plans

All permanent full-time and part-time employees are required to enroll in a group retirement plan.  These plans have fixed contribution rates which cannot be increased or decreased.  For employees who wish to contribute more or for employees who are not eligible for the group retirement plan, two additional, voluntary retirement plans are available for enrollment to all employees upon their date of hire.  There are no employer contributions for the voluntary plans.



Whether you are a current retiree or getting ready to retire, this section includes information about your retirement plan and the process you need to follow to ensure that you have a smooth transition to retirement.

Life Events

Major life events – such as birth or adoption of a child, marriage, or divorce – enable you to make changes to your health care plans and add or drop eligible dependents from coverage.


Leave/Time Off

Eligible State System employees are compensated with paid time off. Review the information in this section or your applicable collective bargaining agreement for further detail and entitlement.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Flexible spending accounts (FSAs) governed by the IRS Code, allow employees to have income withheld from their paychecks before taxes for eventual reimbursement of certain medical and dependent care expenses.


Employee Assistance Program (SEAP)

Whether you want to talk about an issue, seek counseling, find legal resources, or get advice about a financial concern, SEAP is a free confidential program to all State System employees; this includes everyone who lives in your house, as well as your parents, adult children, and siblings regardless of where they live
