Who is Eligible?

Full-time employees of CFCC become eligible for benefits on the 1st of the month following hire date if hired between the 1st and 15th of the month. If hired between the 16th and last day of the month, then benefit eligibility will be 1st of the month following 30 days.

When Elections, Waivers, and Changes Can Be Made

Due to the pre-tax status of many benefits offered, employees can only make elections, waivers, and changes during special enrollment periods which include:

  • Within 30 calendar days of hire
  • Within 30 calendar days of a qualifying life event
  • During annual open enrollment
  • No exceptions can be made outside these enrollment periods

Payroll Deduction Alert: Please be aware that State Health Plan premium payments are billed in advance. Therefore, if you choose to enroll in healthcare effective the current month, you may see a double deduction on your next paycheck. All other benefits offered through Pierce Group are billed on a month-to-month basis.
