Employee Insurance and Benefits

insurance



As a member of an Office of Group Benefits (OGB) plan, you have access to  exceptional health and wellness resources. The Office of Group Benefits is committed to offering benefits and programs that help you and your family preserve and improve your quality of life everyday.  



Eligibility:

  •  You may enroll in the Office of Group Benefits (OGB) program if you are a full-time employee currently working a full semester or more.

  • New Employees:
    Health coverage becomes effective 30 days after the 1st of the following month. (i.e. If your hire date is August seventh, your insurance will not be effective until October first.)

  • Late Applicants:
    I f you have a qualifying event sign up by the 14th of any month and Insurance is effective the following month. Insurance premiums are deducted from your paycheck the prior month of the effective date.  Legal documentation is required for all qualifying event.  You have 30 days from the qualifying event date to make changes to your policy.

For Retirees

The amount of your premium depends on the number of years you’ve had insurance cover-age. If you were enrolled with OGB (formally known as the State Employees Group Benefits Program) prior to November 14, 2001, then you are vested with OGB and your premium will be subsidized 75% by the State. If you were not vested by this time, then the percentage of State Subsidy is reduced depending on the number of years you carried health insurance prior to retirement.


Years of Participation

Percentage State Pays
10 or fewer 19% of total premium
>10, but < 15 38% of total premium
>15, but < 20 56% of total premium
20 or more 75% of total premium

When you retire you may keep the health insurance through OGB. As a courtesy to the retiree, TRSL and LSERS will deduct your Health & State offered Life Insurance from your retirement check; however, it takes several months for this to occur. In the mean-time, you will pay LPPS until you see the insurance deduction from your retirement.
