    If you have questions, call the Benefits Helpline at (206) 957-7066 or (800) 946-7066. Benefits specialists are available M-F, 8am to 5pm PST.

    Who is eligible for Coverage?

    All district staff who are anticipated to work 630 hours in a school year will be eligible for full benefits. Benefits will not be pro-rated for part-time employees. Employees who do not waive coverage will be automatically enrolled by the Health Care Authority. See the SEBB Eligibility Fact Sheet for more information.

    Coverage for Your Family Members

    Employees may continue to cover eligible family members (dependents) on their health plans through SEBB. Eligible dependents will include legally married spouses, state-registered domestic partners and eligible children. 

    Dependent Verification will be Required

    All dependent coverage will require verification of relationship. This means that each employee wishing to cover their spouse, state-registered domestic partner, or children will need to provide proof of their relationship. There are many documents that employees can use as proof, including birth or marriage certificates or tax returns.

    Employees who wish to cover their domestic partner or partner’s children will need either to prove they are in a state-registered domestic partnership or provide proof of marriage. For a bit of history, in 2014, Washington law converted most state-registered domestic partnerships to marriage so there are very few remaining state-registered domestic partnerships in Washington State.

    See the SEBB Eligibility Fact Sheet for more information.
