Health Insurance & Social Security
Employees who continue working beyond teh age of eligibility for full social security retirement are entitled to the same medical coverage they had before that age. However, employees and their spouses should contact the Social Security Officethree months prior to their eligibility age in order to enroll in Part A of the Medicare Program and to obtain current and specific information about the entire program. Employees do not need to sign up for Part B of Medicare as long as they are active employee covered under the Le Moyne College medical plan.


COBRA
Under the provisions of a law commonly referred to as COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act), a terminating employee may usually arrange to continue coverage for a longer period, if necessary, but the employee is responsible for paying the full cost. Arrangements for continuation of coverage are made through the Office of Human Resources.

Also, under the COBRA law a participant who becomes ineligible for coverage due to a loss of dependent status (a divorced spouse or child aging out) can continue coverage for a limited period, but the participant must notify the Office of Human Resources within 30 days of the qualifying event.

​The College maintains a group long-term disability insurance plan, which provides each participant a portion of his/her income in the event of a long term disability. The cost of the insurance is paid by Le Moyne College. Under this program, disability is defined as being completely unable due to sickness, bodily injury, or pregnancy to perform your normal occupation.

Eligibility: Full-time employees with one year of active full-time employment. An individual may be eligible for immediate enrollment if he/she had group disability coverage just prior to join Le Moyne College.

Benefits begin as of the first of the month following six consecutive months of total disability. The plan provides an income benefit of 60% of base monthly salary, with a maximum of $10,000 per month. Payments are reduced by the amount of any Social Security and/or Workers' Compensation benefits. If the employee was participating in the College's Retirement plan when disability began, the plan also provides a monthly premium benefit for the retirement plan contributions.

Employees will retain medical and dental insurance at the active employee rate, as well as Life, Long-term Disability, and retirement contributions under The Hartford's waiver of premium benefit.

Benefit Summary - LTD.pdf

Faculty members and exempt (salaried) employees will also receive 40% of their salary for the first six months of long-term disability. 

This insurance coverage will end when a person terminates employment at Le Moyne College or goes on unpaid leave of absence.

1. New employees: Employees and spouse can elect any amount up to the guarantee issue without evidence of insurability. Child benefit of $10,000 never requires evidence of insurability.  Must enroll within 31 days of eligibility date.

2. Annual Open Enrollment: Employees can enroll in coverage at this time but must provide evidence of insurability. This applies to new enrollees and current enrollees who want to increase coverage amounts for the employee and/or spouse.

3. Family Status Change: This allows an employee to elect coverage for themselves, spouse, or child due to a change (i.e. marriage, spouse loss of coverage, birth of a child).  Employee is still required to provide evidence of insurability for any employee election.
