What benefits are offered to WCS employees?
Health insurance coverage is provided for full-time, permanent employees with dependent coverage available. Employees may choose from among several state plans. Permanent part-time employees are eligible for coverage on a self-paid basis. Questions concerning plans offered to employees and dependents should be directed to the proper Human Resource Services administrator. Open Enrollment is November 2-19, 2019.
Dental insurance is also made available to all full-time, permanent employees on an individual or a family basis. The system pays a small portion of the cost of this insurance. The employee has the option to accept coverage on either an individual or a family basis. If coverage is declined by the employee and eligible dependents during the first 30 days following the employment date, the employee and/or dependents will have a 12-month waiting period before full coverage begins.
WCS provides $5,000 in life insurance for all full-time, permanent employees. There is no cost to the employee for this coverage. Additional coverage for the employee and dependents is available at a small cost to the employee. Coverage will begin on the first day of the month following the employment date.
Colonial also provides additional life, vision, and health policies. Enrollment in Colonial programs is usually held in February and March of each year.
