Welcome to the Saint Paul Public Schools Benefits Website!
Employee Eligibility: If you are scheduled to work 20 hours or more and you are not a temporary employee, you are eligible for insurance starting 30 days from your date of hire.
Newly eligible employees will be invited to a benefits orientation session. During this session you will learn about the insurance options available such as medical plans, dental, vision, optional life insurance, short term disability and long term disability. Benefit elections need to be made within 30 days from your start date. Elections are done through using our online enrollment system. If you do not complete the online enrollment within the 30 days from your hire date, core coverage required under your respective bargaining unit will be set up. You will not be able to make any changes until the next Open Enrollment period or with a Qualified Status Change. Please refer to your Labor Agreement or the Benefits Summary to view your eligibility criteria.
