BENEFITS FOR ADJUNCT FACULTy
All part-time (adjunct) faculty with at least a 40% load and no other coverage are eligible to enroll in the District's medical plan with Kaiser Permanente. The enrollment period for fall 2019 was held September 9, 2019 through September 20, 2019. If you were eligible and did not enroll, you will need to wait until next semester's enrollment period (held in February) to enroll. Exceptions may be made for anyone who has lost their other coverage or has a qualifying life event which may allow them to enroll mid-semester. Please contact Human Resources by emailing HR.Benefits@sjeccd.edu or calling 408.223.6713 for assistance.
Participants must recertify each semester to continue coverage.

Each November/December, the District holds a special enrollment period for the following calendar year. Adjunct faculty teaching in the fall who already have an assignment for the following spring semester must enroll during that enrollment window. Those without a spring assignment will be allowed to enroll in February once they have an assignment. New hires will be allowed to enroll within 30 days of their first day of work. Faculty who only work in the fall will be allowed to enroll at that time for the remainder of the calendar year. Flexible Spending Accounts are not for everyone every year so be sure to plan accordingly as there are no refunds provided and accounts can only be closed mid-year under certain circumstances.
