Insurance Benefit Eligibility

  • Employees who are TRS members
    Active employees who are TRS members who are eligible for medical and supplemental benefits offered through the district. You must work 20 or more hours per week and be making retirement contributions to the Teacher Retirement System of Texas in order to be eligible for the district contribution towards health insurance.

    Employees who are Non-TRS members
    Active Non-TRS members are eligible for medical coverage only. You must work 10 or more hours per week and must pay 100% of the TRS-ActiveCare medical premiums.

    Current Employees
    Current Employees may select and change benefits during the district's annual open enrollment period, which typically occurs during the summer.

    (Certain special events such as a change in marital status, dependent status or employment status of an employee or spouse, may qualify for an exception to this rule. Contact the benefits department within 31 days of the qualifying event for further clarification.)

    New Employees
    You must enroll or decline benefits offered through the district within 31 calendar days from your actively at work date (start date).  Participation in the health-care benefits will be effective on either (1) employee's first active day of employment (physical start date) or (2) the first of the month following the first active day of employment. 

    Supplemental benefits will be effective the first of the month following the first active day of employment. 

    Should a new employee choose not to enroll within the initial 31 day sign-up, the next opportunity for enrollment will be during the next Annual Open Enrollment.  (Certain special events such as a change in marital status, dependent status or employment status of an employee or spouse, may qualify for an exception to this rule. Contact the benefits department within 31 days of the qualifying event for further clarification.)
