Welcome to Pinellas County Schools! As a newly benefit-eligible employee this is your opportunity to enroll in the benefit plans of your choice.
For a summary of our benefit plans, please review our Benefits At a Glance.
Benefits are effective the first day of the month following 60 days of employment in an eligible status. A completed 2023 Enrollment and Change Form , along with your Statement of Benefits Form is due in Risk Management within 31 days of your employment date. This is very important--so please don't forget! If you are late, you will have to wait until the next Annual Enrollment (mid-October) to apply for your benefits for the new year.
If you do not purchase medical insurance, you may receive up to a $75 per-pay-period credit toward the purchase of eligible supplement benefits: "No Health" Board Contribution.If your coverage is effective after January 1st, you may be responsible for summer premiums that will automatically be deducted from your paycheck in addition to your normal bi-weekly deduction. If you later add health insurance, you may owe the last month that you do not have health insurance because deductions are taken in advance.Frequently Asked Questions
