Benefits for Part-Time Faculty

Can I Obtain Medical Benefits at Cabrillo?

You are eligible for a District-paid benefits stipend and access to the District health plans after working at least a 50% workload (or 15 units) for two academic years. As of 2007-08, service worked over summer and winter terms counts towards establishing eligibility. Eligibility is maintained by working at least 50% (or 15 units) each year. Please note the summer sessions prior to an academic year count towards that academic year (for example if you work during the summer of 2008 it will be applied towards your eligibility for 2008-09).

How do I know if I am eligible?

By May 15 of each year, the Human Resources department is to notify you if you are eligible for the District-paid stipend the following year. Those choosing to participate must notify the Human Resources office by August 1st of each year. Coverage is effective September 1st through August 31st. If you believe that you are eligible and do not receive notification from the District, please contact the Academic Resource Specialist in Human Resources (Debra Barnett at 479-6240).

What if my class is cancelled?

If you drop below the 15 teaching unit requirement per academic year needed to maintain eligibility due to a class cancellation after the beginning of a term, you will not lose eligibility for your District-paid health benefit stipend. Please note that you are responsible for communicating this information to the Human Resources office.
