Employee eligibility tools and worksheets

Find the tools you need to help determine employee eligibility (based on the employee's situation).

Determining eligibility

SEBB provides the following method to determine eligibility for the employer contribution toward benefits for school employees of SEBB organizations. The method:

  • Facilitates decisions compliant with RCW and WAC.
  • Provides required notice and information to employees.
  • Confirms receipt of the required notice and information.
  • Provides guidance and suggestions for the SEBB organization and school employee.

Eligibility method

Step 1 Choose the worksheet below that describes the employee's situation. Additional information is provided to guide you to other worksheets that may be more appropriate for the employee's situation.
Step 2 Click on the title of the specific worksheet that describes the employee or employee's situation. The worksheet will display in Excel.
Step 3 Complete the worksheet electronically. Do not save worksheets to your computer, as they are updated often and employees may be issued outdated information.
Step 4 With the exception of the A-5 worksheet, the employee must sign their completed worksheet. If the employee is not with you to sign their worksheet, send them a completed worksheet and request a returned, signed copy or an email confirming receipt.
Step 5 File the worksheet electronically or as a hard copy for your use and review by SEBB.
