WHO IS ELIGIBLE
An employee is eligible to enroll in the Town's benefit plans if the employee is a full-time employee scheduled to work at least 30 hours per week.  Employees are eligible for benefits after 30 days of continuous service.

WHEN COVERAGE BEGINS
When you first join the Town of Pantego, you will be provided with an enrollment packet to enroll yourself and your dependents for benefits. If you do not enroll within the 30 day window from your hire date, you will have to wait until the next annual Open Enrollment period to enroll for benefits and make changes to coverage.  Open Enrollment will normally run from August 15 through September 15 of every year.

MAKING CHANGES TO COVERAGE
Once you make your benefit elections, these choices remain in effect until the next annual Open Enrollment unless you have a Qualified Status Event. If you have a qualified status event, you can make certain changes during the plan year.  However, you must submit your enrollment change form to the HR Coordinator within the allowable time permitted.  You must complete the appropriate Benefit Change/Enrollment form(s) and submit the appropriate documentation supporting the change in coverage (i.e. marriage license, birth certificate). If the form(s) and supporting documentation are not received within the allowable time permitted, you will have to wait until the next annual Open Enrollment to make new elections. Refer to Qualified Status Event link above.
