Whittier City School District takes pride in offering a comprehensive and competitive benefits package to it's employees. Whittier City School District offers a benefit program that allows choice and flexibility. Through this program you can choose the benefits that are best suited for you and your family.
It is important that you take the time to review all the plan options available to you. Choose the benefits that will fit you and your families needs throughout the year.
Election changes during the Plan Year are regulated by the Internal Revenue Service, not the Employer. Generally, you cannot change your Benefit elections you have selected during the Plan Year, although your election will terminate if you are no longer working for the Employer. Normally, you may change your Benefit elections only during the Annual Open Enrollment Period, and then only for the coming Plan Year. There are several important exceptions to this general rule:
Birth and Adoption
Loss of spouse's job where coverage is maintained through a spouse's plan
Death of a spouse or dependent
Loss of Dependent Status
These special circumstances, often referred to as life event changes, will allow you to make plan changes at any time during the year in which they occur. For any allowable changes you must inform your benefits area within 30 days of the event to avoid a lapse in coverage. All other changes are deferred to open enrollment.
The exception is job share contracts, wherein health insurance is negotiated between the contract participants.
Minimum requirement: work a regular 4 hour per day position
