As the district clerk/business managers (administration), you play a vital role in the benefit offerings for your district. You help ensure:
- New hire health and life benefit enrollment paperwork is completed appropriately and submitted in a timely manner (within 30 days), or providing MUST with information for online enrollment so that members can enroll online. Failure to notify MUST in a timely manner may result in a denial of coverage.
- School employees who don’t want coverage complete the required waiver form.
- Timely notification of terminating employee coverage and benefit (within 30 days). Please note that failure to provide termination and retiree status changes may result in no offer of COBRA coverage.
- MUST is notified of benefit changes in a timely manner (within 30 days).
The most current forms are required and can be found on the MUST website, as well as on the district’s renewal thumb drive.
