New Employee Benefits Enrollment
New full-time employees will receive benefit information on the day of their new hire orientation. Each new employee is responsible for enrolling or waiving benefits within 30 days of their "start date' not hire date. Failure to do so could leave the employee and their dependent/s without insurance coverage for the current plan year (September 1, 2020 - August 31, 2021).
Once benefits are elected, the commitment to those elections is for the full benefit year. Changes to benefits can only be made during the next Open Enrollment or when a Qualifying Life Event (QLE) occurs. Participation in the healthcare benefits will be effective on either 1.) the employee’s first active day of employment (premiums are not prorated) or 2.) the first of the month following the first active day of employment. Most supplemental insurance benefits will be effective on the first of the month following the first active day of employment.
New Substitute employees will receive benefit information during their new hire processes also. Substitutes are offered medical insurance coverage only. ManorISD does not contribute toward the cost of medical insurance premiums for temporary, substitute or seasonal employees. The Substitute employee is responsible for making payment arrangements with the Payroll & Benefits office. Check or money is made out to MISD and full monthly premium is due by the 25th of each month. Substitutes are responsible for enrolling or waiving medical benefits within 30 days of their start date (not hire date). Failure to do so could leave the employee and their dependent/s without insurance coverage for the current benefit plan year (Sept. 1, 2019- Aug. 31, 2020).
If you are a Substitute, please ensure you are viewing the rate sheet for "SUBS"
