The City of Baker School System knows how important it is to provide quality employee benefits at a competitive price for ourselves and our family members. We always strive to craft a total benefits package that meets your needs and that of the district.
You may enroll in several benefit plans during the initial eligibility period of 1st of the month following 30 days from your date of hire. Choosing not to enroll yourself and/or your eligible dependents during this time period will require you to wait until the next annual enrollment period, or a special enrollment period, if one occurs. If a special enrollment event occurs, you then have 30 days from the event to enroll in the plan(s).
A special enrollment event or family status change involves any of the following:
- Marriage or divorce;
Birth, adoption or change in legal custody of a child;
A child attaining age 26;
Death of spouse or child;
Spouse obtaining new employment or insurance through their work; losing their employment; or losing their insurance NON-VOLUNTARILY.
If you experience a Family status Change, it is YOUR responsibility to
advise the Benefits Office within 30 days of the event in order to
request a change.
Changes, additions or voluntary cancellations cannot be made at any time during the year except during the open enrollment period.
