Change in Employment (Appointment) Status
An employee’s change in employment status may result in changes in benefits eligibility, coverage, and premium costs.
Examples of a change of employment status include:
- a change from a non-benefits eligible appointment to a benefits-eligible appointment
- part-time (below 50%) to full-time (50% or above) employment change
To be eligible for SF State University's benefits you must
- be an employee who is paid by San Francisco State University
