Health Benefits

The level of health care coverage is guaranteed through 2027. Even if the insurance companies offering the coverage change, the benefits will mirror current benefits.

The State offers a choice of plans at varying cost to the employee, depending on the plan and type of coverage (individual, family). All plans will gradually increase co-pays for office visits and most plans will gradually raise the monthly premiums.

Part-time employees scheduled to work at least 17.5 hours per week receive the same health insurance coverage as full-time employees. Those who work less than 17.5 hours may buy health insurance at the group rate.

Retirement Benefits

All Community College employees, both full-time and part-time, are in a pension program. Three options are open to all employees: The State Employees Retirement System (SERS), the Alternate Retirement Plan (ARP), and the SERS Hybrid Plan. A fourth option, available only to those already enrolled in it, is the Teachers Retirement System (TRS). The program you choose will depend on your own unique circumstances.

Employees must make a choice by their first day of employment. Those who do not choose will automatically be placed in the Hybrid plan.

Key features of each plan are listed below:
