Qualifying Event/State Plan Changes

Part-time Employee Benefit Information

As a University of Illinois employee receiving benefits, you and your eligible dependents qualify for health, dental and vision insurance coverage. In addition:

  • Part-time employees may elect to waive health, dental and vision insurance coverage.
  • The State of Illinois pays for a portion of employee health and dental insurance, with a monthly employee contribution based on the employee's salary and plan selected.
  • Part-time employees also pay for a percentage of the State contribution, based upon the percentage of the appointment.
  • Salary-based contributions remain in effect until June 30 of the plan year unless you retire, accept a voluntary salary reduction or return to State employment at a different salary (this does not apply if you are returning to work from a leave of absence).
