Benefits Eligibility Definition

Eligibility for participation in these programs is dependent upon the employee’s appointment status:

  2. Classified employees (exempt and non-exempt) - appointed to either a full-time (1.0 FTE) or part-time (.5 FTE or more) regular position requiring at least 1,000 hours of compensable service per year are benefits eligible for program participation.
