Message from President Roberts: PEBB Health Care Benefits Update

Dear Colleague,

Recently, there have been inquiries regarding the impact of the anticipated government shutdown if the legislature does not pass a budget prior to July 1. As I indicated in my end-of-year message to the campus, the College is committed to operating through summer quarter in service to our diverse students and communities.

Some of you may have seen messages from the state discussing the anticipated impact of the shutdown to areas such as health care services provided under your benefit coverage through the Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB). While other state agencies may be preparing for this potential impact to benefit coverage, please note that as a Shoreline employee, your PEBB benefits (which include medical, dental, life, and long-term disability insurance) will continue through summer based on the anticipated decision by the Board of Trustees to pass a continuing resolution so the College can commit operating funds beginning July 1, 2017.

Additional information from PEBB related to the potential state government shutdown can be found HERE.

If you have additional questions, please contact Stuart Trippel or Veronica Zura at any time.

Thank you,

Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.

President
