Santa Rosa Junior College offers its employees a comprehensive fringe benefit package that includes health insurance, dental insurance, vision care plan, life insurance, and long-term disability. This coverage is offered for the employee and their dependents. The highlights of the package include:

Medical Insurance
The District offers a choice of two health plans: Kaiser Permanente HMO Health Plan or SISC/Blue Shield PPO Health Plan. Both are prepaid plans and with each plan you merely present you ID card to your provider, pay the applicable co-payment (if any), and receive services. You can preview a benefits summary for each plan - SISC Kaiser Permanente or SISC Blue Shield/Navitus - or view a comparison of the two health plans. An additional benefit provided to all  SISC Kaiser Permanente and SISC Blue Shield health plan members is the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).  This program provides up to 6 free sessions with a provider per problem situation.  Additional information regarding the EAP can be found here.

Dental Insurance
Santa Rosa Junior College is self-insured for dental insurance through a plan that includes approximately 450 participating dentists. The total benefit provided in any contract year, or portion thereof, is $1,700.00. Claims Administered by: The SSM Group, 1 Willowbrook Court, Suite 230, P.O. Box 750004, Petaluma, CA 94975, (707) 544-1801. Complete Summary Plan Description.

Life Insurance
Benefits are provided to each employee and family by The Standard in the following amounts: Employee Death Benefit @ $50,000.00; Spouse (death benefit) @ $5,000.00; Accidental Death @ additional $50,000.00; and Children @ $5,000.00.

Vision Care Plan
Coverage is provided for the employee and family by Vision Service Plan. Deductible is $10.00/year per family member; coverage includes one vision exam/year, lenses once a year, if necessary, and frames and contacts every other year.

Long-Term Disability
Income protection coverage for employees is provided through Sun Life Financial. Should you become disabled, after a 60-day waiting period, the benefit payable to you is two-thirds of your monthly salary before tax liability. Depending on your employment status, you are entitled to either a one-year benefit or up to the age of 65.

Retirement Plans
Employees are eligible to participate in either the State Teachers' Retirement System (STRS) or Public Employer's Retirement System (PERS), depending on position classification and/or prior membership. Adjunct faculty also have the option of participating in Fidelity Investments or the Cash Balance Program with STRS. Retirement allowance is calculated on a formula based on age at retirement, number of years of service, and income. Members are eligible to retire with a minimum of five years of service.
