EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLAN


Santa Rosa Junior College offers its employees, and their eligible dependents, a comprehensive fringe benefit package that includes health insurance, dental insurance, vision care, life insurance, and long-term disability.  The highlights of the package include:

 

Dental Insurance
Santa Rosa Junior College offers a self-insured dental plan that includes more than 750 participating dentists.  The annual dental benefit provided each benefit year is $1,700.00.  Claims are administered by:  Arrow Benefits Group, 1 Willowbrook Court, Suite 230, P.O. Box 750758, Petaluma, CA  94975, (707) 544-1801.  Attached are the links to a complete Summary Plan Description and Listing of Participating Dentists.

Life Insurance
The District paid basic life insurance benefits are provided by Standard Insurance Company.  The benefit amount is $50,000.00 for the employee and $5,000.00 for eligible dependents.  These benefit amounts are doubled if an accidental death & dismemberment event occurs.  Voluntary supplemental coverage is available at the employee’s expense.

Long-Term Disability
Income protection coverage for employees is provided through Sun Life Financial. Should you become disabled, after a 60-day waiting period, the benefit payable to you is two-thirds of your monthly salary before tax liability. Depending on your employment status, you are entitled to either a one-year benefit or up to the age of 65.

Retirement Plans
Employees are eligible for participation in either the State Teachers Retirement System (CalSTRS) or the Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) based upon the position classification and/or prior membership.  These programs provide a lifetime retirement allowance based upon a retirement system formula which includes five full-time years of service.  Adjunct faculty also have the option of participating in Fidelity Investments or the CalSTRS Cash Balance system which do not require any vesting or years of service.
