State Health Insurance

Eligibility

To be eligible for the State Employee Group Insurance Program (SEGIP), you must be eligible to participate in the State Universities Retirement System (SURS) and be:

  • A regular employee with an appointment of at least 50% time or more, or
  • A temporary employee with an appointment of 50% time or more for at least nine months, or
  • An employee hired for at least 4.5 months (one semester) at 100% time
Note about Part-Time State Benefit Eligibility
Benefits-eligible employees who work 50-99% of a normal work period are defined as part-time benefits-eligible employees. Although your employment status may be classified as full-time, if you have an appointment of less than 9 months, your eligibility for State benefits could be classified as part-time. For appointments of less than 9 months, a formula determines your part-time appointment percentage for purposes of State benefits eligibility: length of employment, divided by 9 months, then multiplied by your full-time equivalent percentage. For example, if you are hired for 4.5 months at 100% time, you would be considered a 50% employee (4.5 / 9 = .5 x 100= 50%) for SEGIP insurance.

If you are employed as a flex year University employee, working 6 months or greater, but less than 12 months, you may also meet the definition of a part-time State benefits-eligible employee if the layoff period is not a direct result of the academic year summer break. The formula used to determine a flex year University employee's appointment percentage for purposes of State benefits eligibility is the length of employment, divided by 12 months, multiplied by your full-time equivalent percentage (for example: 6 / 12 = .5 x 100= 50%)

Please contact University Payroll and Benefits if you have any questions about your part-time or flex year status and benefits eligibility.
