Insurance After Separation From Employment
Involuntary or voluntary separation from employment severs the employee/employer relationship and changes benefit eligibility.
EGID Health, Dental, and Vision: Coverage continues until the end of the month of separation. If you do not have enough wages to cover the premiums you will be responsible for paying the balance. You may continue the coverage under COBRA for a limited time.
District Paid Life: District paid life insurance continues until the month of separation. You may convert the coverage to a permanent policy. Please contact the Insurance/Benefit Office if you are interested in converting your group life policy to a permanent policy. Request for the conversion must be completed within 31 days of resignation.
Flex Benefit Accounts: You have 90 days after the plan year ends to submit claims for reimbursement of medical expenses incurred prior to separation.
Voluntary Plans: Below is a list of benefit plans that can be continued by the employee following separation of service. Please contact the vendor directly to continue premium payments for these plans.
