The Employee Benefits Division (EBD) provides coverage for State employees, retirees, and their dependents to protect them from financial loss and to provide for health care expenses.  This coverage includes: the administration of medical benefits, other health related insurance programs, flexible spending accounts, and life insurance.  Our program provides many options for multiple types of benefits that meet the unique needs of a diverse workforce.  Our efforts make a major contribution toward the recruitment and retention of productive State employees serving State citizens.

We emphasize education, training, and information about the available benefits coverage.  To do so, we work with other State agencies through continuing education and training of Agency Benefits Coordinators and Human Resource Directors.  We also educate and assist the State workforce in receiving and understanding their benefits.  These services are provided through multiple means of communication, including: training sessions, benefits booklets, Web-site information, and benefit fairs.

The Employee Benefits Division strives to administer benefit program laws and regulations in a manner that is sensitive, responsible, knowledgeable, and timely.  

Our Purpose

Designs, develops, implements, and administers group insurance, and other employee benefit plans; processes oversees insurance budget preparation and management; and provides direct services to employees and retirees with respect to benefits.
