Benefits Department

The Passaic Public Schools recognizes the importance of maintaining a comprehensive Benefits Program. The following is an overview of what we offer our employees.

Please note: The particular plans available to individual members will vary depending upon one’s Employment Status.

Benefits Information

State Health Benefits Program or School Employees’ Health Benefits Program (SHBP/SEHBP)

Important: DUAL ENROLLMENT IS PROHIBITED – State statute specifically prohibits two employees/retirees who are both enrolled in the SHBP/SEHBP and who are married to each other, civil union partners, or eligible domestic partners from enrolling under both the SBHP and SEHBP’s plans. One member can waive the plan or both can elect single coverage on the plan.  Furthermore, two SHBP/SEHBP members cannot both cover the same children as dependents under both of the plans.

Eligible Dependent Children Duration of Medical Coverage:  An eligible dependent child will be eligible to remain under the medical coverage until the end of the calendar year (December 31st) in which he/she turns 26 years old whether they are in college or not.
