Benefits Information

You will receive your benefits packet in the Human Resources department when completing your new hire paperwork .  The benefits packet includes all benefits forms. You can also view our Benefits Summary information.

Benefits are effective the first of the month following your first month of employment.  If your employment start date occurs on the first of the month (e.g., July 1, August 1), your benefits become effective that same day.  You have 30 days from your employment start date to submit your benefit forms to the Human Resources department.  If you have questions about the completion of your benefits forms, contact the Benefits department at 651-962-6520.
