The District provides a comprehensive package of benefits to protect you and your family against the cost of injury or illness and to help you prepare for a secure financial future.
Open enrollment is the period of time when you can make changes to your health insurance provider for the next calendar year. Open enrollment is typically held in late September/early October for the next calendar year. Employees can stop coverage at any time, but may only add coverage mid-year if they have a qualifying event (loss of insurance, marriage, birth or adoption of child).
If you add a spouse you will need to provide a copy of your marriage license. If you add a child you will need to provide a copy of the child's birth certificate/adoption papers to a payroll and benefits coordinator. If you do not have a copy of either a marriage license or birth certificate, you can usually order a copy online. In Santa Clara, records can be ordered through the Office of the Clerk Recorder through VitalChek at http://www.vitalchek.com/vital-records/california/santa-clara-county-recorder.
