The Maricopa Community Colleges (MCCCD) is pleased to offer a comprehensive Flexible Benefit Program to all Benefit Eligible Employees.
The Flex Benefit Program allows employees to choose from a variety of benefits. Each employee is allocated flex credits to spend on options that meet the employees' needs. Each flex benefit has a cost. If the cost exceeds the flex credits, you pay the difference through biweekly payroll deductions. If the cost is less than your flex credits, the unused amount is returned to you as taxable income. Your flex credits are allocated on a monthly basis and are determined by the tier of medical coverage purchased.
You are eligible to participate in the Flex Benefit Program if you are employed by MCCCD in one of the following categories and occupy a position budgeted and approved by the Maricopa Community Colleges Governing Board.
- Board-approved personnel who are regularly scheduled to work at least 30 hours a week.
- Residential faculty members compensated by MCCCD who carry at least a three-quarter (.75 FTE) teaching load (visiting or part-time faculty members are not eligible).
When Does My Coverage Begin?
New employee - coverage begins on the first day of the month after 30 days have elapsed from the later of your Board approval date or your start date, provided all benefit enrollment paperwork has been completed and submitted to HR. Per IRS regulations, employees must sign up for their benefits prior to their benefits start date. You may submit your benefit elections at the new employee orientation meeting or directly to the Employee Benefits Department at the District Office by close of the business day on or before the last working day of the month prior to your benefits effective date.
Please Note: The benefit effective date is dependent upon final Board approval of your assignment.
