There has been nothing normal about the 2020-21 school year. COVID-19 has brought change and uncertainty to all of our lives.
As this school year comes to a close, we want to acknowledge and thank you for your dedication and perseverance through these challenging times.
With summer just around the corner, here are a few important reminders about your OSSTF Employee Life and Health Trust (ELHT) benefits coverage:
NOTE: Check your benefits booklet to confirm if your natural or adopted child, stepchild or foster child is eligible for coverage. You can also check your benefits booklet to confirm the maximum age of your student for coverage eligibility, as well as to see what products and/or services are covered by your benefits plan.
Is your employment status changing with the end of the school year?
If your employment status is changing soon, here are some important reminders about your benefits.
