Benefit Information for NHA and ESSS Members

If you work in the role of Noon Hour Assistant or Elementary School Student Supervisor, you will be offered the opportunity to enroll for the new EWBT Benefits Plan. Information regarding the plan and enrollment should be arriving at your home address in approximately three (3) weeks.  From the time you receive the invitation to enroll, you will have 31 days to complete the enrollment, if you are interested.  It is important to note that benefit coverage premium costs are determined by the provider according to the number of hours you are regularly scheduled to work as a permanent employee. The cost for someone working a ten hour work week is fifty percent (50%) of the premium while the cost increases to one hundred percent (100%) of the premium for those scheduled to work fewer than 10 hours per week. Please wait for your information package to arrive and check back to the website for updates.
