Newly Hired

  • Welcome to Pinellas County Schools! As a newly benefit-eligible employee, your benefits are effective the first day of the month following 60 days of employment in an eligible status. Benefit forms need to be received by Risk Management within 31 days from your date of hire. 

    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.
