Change in Family Status

When an employee experiences a change in family status (divorce, marriage, birth of a child, death of a family member) there may be changes that need to be made that concern health benefits.  For information about how a change of family status could impact you, please click here:  Things to Consider When a Family Status Change Occurs


Long Term Care Insurance (Closed to New Members Effective August 1, 2012)

Long term care comprises a broad range of services provided to persons of all ages who have lost their ability to function independently because of a physical or mental impairment.  Long-term care differs from other types of health care in that its goal is not to cure an illness, but to allow an individual to attain and maintain an optimal level of functioning.

Long term care services include personal care, home health care, rehabilitation, adult day care, care management, social services, assisted living, and nursing home services. Long term care services may be delivered on a regular basis or intermittent over a period of several months, several years, or a lifetime.  Detailed information about the Long Term Care Plan is here: State of New Jersey Long Term Care Insurance
