Premium Holiday Q & A
In August, the School Employees’ Health Benefits Program (SEHBP) Commission voted to approve a contribution “holiday” in February 2022. This means that districts enrolled in the School Employees’ Health Benefits Program will not have to pay the February bill to the state, and employees will not have to make the contribution for that premium. NJEA advocated for this amendment when P.L. 2021, c. 163 was introduced to ensure that if a district did not have to pay the premium to the state then our members should not have to pay to contribution to the district.
