New Employees

As a new employee who is working half time or more, you may enroll in District-paid dental (either Delta Dental or SafeGuard), CalPERS medical (please see below), and vision benefits through Vision Service Plan.(If your job requires you to use a computer display for 20 hours or more per week, you may submit a Certification of Video Display Terminal Use.)

You may enroll yourself as well as eligible, qualifying dependents in dental, medical and vision. There is a CalPERS 60/90 Rule that affects when you may apply for benefits or change your benefits. As a new employee, under CalPERS’ 60/90 rule, you must submit paperwork within 60 days of the event in order to have your new benefits effective the first of the month after the new hire.

If you are enrolling dependents, please include copies of social security cards for each dependent, a copy of a birth certificate for each child, and a copy of your marriage license if you are married and are enrolling your spouse. If you are enrolling a registered domestic partner, please submit a copy of the State Certification or a copy of LACCD's Affidavit of Domestic Partnership (and if your domestic partner is your tax dependent, please submit the Affidavit of Domestic Partner Status and Tax Dependency Status.)

LACCD also offers both an HRA (Health Reimbursement Account) and an FSA (Flexible Spending Account). For information regarding enrolling in the FSA, please contact the Health Benefits Unit at (888) 428-2980.

LACCD offers a District-paid basic life insurance plan though Cigna. Please complete and submit a copy of the Cigna enrollment form as well as the Cigna Beneficiary Designation form.
