SEBB Long Term Disability (LTD) Benefit
Starting January 1, 2022, the SEBB Program will automatically enroll all SEBB-eligible employees in an Employee-paid 60% LTD plan, if not already enrolled.
You can print and complete the LTD Enrollment/Change Form if you'd like to reduce or decline this supplemental LTD coverage.
If you didn't actively reduce or decline your LTD benefit election prior to December 31, 2021, you will be enrolled in the 60 percent plan, and the premium will be deducted from your paycheck for January, 2022 coverage.
Beginning January, 2022, employees will have a .58% deduction (58 cents for every $100 earned) deducted from their wages to fund the state's long term care program, per House Bill 1087. A typical Washington earner, making $52,075 annually, will contribute $25.17 per month.

Newly-eligible employees have 31 days from their start date to enroll in the various benefit plans. If an employee does not enroll within 31 days of eligibility, the next available time to make changes or enroll dependents will be during the yearly Open Enrollment. Some benefits may have eligibility requirements that must be met in order to participate if enrollment was not completed during the first 31 days of eligibility.

If you do not enroll or waive your enrollment in SEBB medical during your first 31 days of employment, you will be enrolled by default as a single subscriber in UMP Achieve 1 (for medical), Uniform Dental Plan, MetLife Vision Plan, Basic Life and AD&D Insurance, and Basic Long Term Disability Insurance. Your dependents will not be enrolled. You will be charged a monthly $33 premium for medical coverage as well as a $25 per account monthly tobacco use premium surcharge.
If you are enrolled by default, you cannot change plans or enroll your eligible dependents until the next annual open enrollment, unless you have a special open enrollment event that allows the change.
