Health Insurance

Eligibility

To be eligible to receive State of Illinois group health insurance, you must be eligible to participate in the State Universities Retirement System (SURS) and either:

  • 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 Insurance Eligibility
Benefits-eligible employees hired for less than 9 months are defined as part-time insurance employees. The formula used to determine a part-time employee’s appointment percentage for purposes of insurance eligibility is the length of employment, divided by 9 months, multiplied by the employee’s full-time equivalent percentage (for example: 6 / 9 = .67 x 100 = 67%).

If an individual is employed as a flex year University employee who is working 6 months or greater, but less than 12 months, he or she may also meet the definition of a part-time insurance 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 insurance eligibility is the length of the employment, divided by 12 months, multiplied by the employee’s full-time equivalent percentage (for example: 6 / 12 = .5 x 100 = 50%).

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