Change of Job (e.g. Merit to P&S or P&S to Merit)
P&S or Merit-Exempt to State of Iowa Merit
What are some of the important considerations if I change from Professional and Scientific benefits to State of Iowa Merit benefits?
State of Iowa Merit benefits begin the 1st of the month following a 30 day waiting period after your new appointment effective date. During that period of time you may purchase COBRA coverage for your health and dental insurance. You will need to attend a benefits orientation meeting to select your new benefits. Contact the Benefits Office for meeting dates and additional information.
