New Employees

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. 

SEBB Enrollment Instructions - click here to view

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.

Special Open Enrollment

Certain events let you make account changes (like changing plans or enrolling a dependent) outside of annual open enrollment. You must provide proof of the event that created the special open enrollment (for example, a marriage or birth certificate) along with the required enrollment/change forms to SEBB My Account, or the Benefits Office, no later than 60 days after the event.

SEBB My Account

2019 Healthcare Flexible Spending Account Participants

Below is important information about the transition to SEBB, and how it impacts your current FSA enrollment. Click here to view the Navia Plan Amendment. Changes to current enrollment:

  • Your existing Medical FSA enrollment will no longer include the $500 carryover feature. You must incur all eligible expenses by the last day of your current plan year, December 31, 2019.

  • Navia will still administer the 90-day claims run-out period through March 31, 2020. Any balance left in your Medical FSA after this date will be forfeited. No funds will carry over into the next plan year.

  • Your existing Navia debit cards will no longer work as of the last day of your current plan year, December 31, 2019.

Workers Compensation Insurance

All employees are automatically covered by workers' compensation. Medical expenses and time loss benefits are paid for injuries incurred on the job with doctor's authorization. The Northshore School District is a self-insured employer. Eberle Vivian Inc. serves as the District's Claims Administrator, and processes all claims. Make sure you report any on-the-job injuries to your school nurse or supervisor immediately, even if you are NOT going to seek professional medical care. For information and forms, please email Dianne Smith at or call her at 425-408-7612.
