Universal Citation: NJ Admin Code 17:9-2.8

Current through Register Vol. 55, No. 48, December 18, 2023

(a) In order to provide mobility to employees transferring their employment from one SHBP or SEHBP participating employer to another, the employee may continue coverage under the program, as long as they enter the service of the new employer in a period for which contributions have already been made; however, if coverage has been terminated, the employee will again have to satisfy the two-month, continuous-employment waiting period in order to obtain the coverage again. An employee hired in September under a 10-month contract is eligible for SHBP coverage during the months of July and August of the following year if they work the full 10-month contract and sufficient charges are deducted prior to the expiration of their 10-month contract to continue their coverage during the heretofore mentioned months pursuant to 52:14-17.32 .

(b) For employees who will have the option of changing plans and coverage upon a transfer, as described in (a) above, a 30-day period will be available for the selection of coverage during which period their former coverage will be continued. State biweekly employees transferring from one State biweekly payroll location to another while coverage is still in force cannot make any plan changes since they are not changing employers.

Amended by 48 N.J.R. 2387(a), effective 11/7/2016
