    Insurance benefits are offered to eligible employees and/or their “dependents” in accordance with the NC Department of Public Instruction and Board of Education. Insurance claims are NOT processed by DPS Human Resources  - they are processed by the specific benefit provider. Employees are also encouraged to access their personal insurance information directly from the benefit providers as follows:

    NOTE: Benefit coverage is for 12 months (January 1 - December 31) and listed premiums would be the benefit deductions for 12 month employees.  Employees paid for 10 months of the year would have higher monthly deductions to cover the summer months when no regular paycheck is received.
