Welcome to Employee Health Benefits

Employee BenefitsAttention New Hires
The Employee Benefits Department is no longer creating benefit packets. However, we have created new hire benefit folders on this website which contains all the documents necessary for you to enroll onto our health benefits. View left-hand column for appropriate folder. Keep in mind that you will have 30 days from your hire date (date you start your new job; contact Human Resources to assist) to submit enrollment forms to the Benefits Department. Otherwise, you will have to wait for Open Enrollment in May, 2018 to enroll.
The information required on the medical, dental, vision and life insurance forms will be your name, address, birth date, social security number and your dependents' information (name and birth date) only if you want to enroll them. If you are enrolling onto Kaiser or Western Health Advantage, you will need to indicate at the top of the enrollment form which plan you are selecting (i.e., Kaiser $20, Kaiser High Deductible, Western Health Advantage $20, Western Health Advantage Hospital (420) or Western Health Advantage High Deductible).
Once you have reviewed the 2017-2018 New Hire document that shows your monthly cost per paycheck and completed your enrollment forms, send all four forms (medical or waiver form, dental, vision and life) to the Benefits Department. Faxing at 916-294-9022, mailing or dropping-off at the Education Services Center is going to be the most secure route since you are listing personal information. If you need help or have questions, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Chantal at email@example.com.
In addition, we have scheduled New Hire Benefit Orientations for:
August 15 - 3:30 pm
August 17 - 3:30 pm
You must RSVP to Chantal at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to attend as seating is limited.
Folsom Cordova Unified School District wants employees to understand their benefits so they can take full advantage of them. This website has been created to assist employees in making informed decisions and elections regarding their health benefits.
