Summer Prepay Insurance Premium Deductions

Summer Prepay premiums are deducted from spring paychecks to maintain insurance coverage between academic years for employees who do not work one or more months during the summer (contract break) and are expected to return in the fall.

Summer prepay deductions are in addition to regular insurance premium deductions. Employees will receive monthly emails with the estimated summer prepay deduction amounts.

Faculty, academic staff, limited appointees, student assistants and employees-in-training enrolled in State Group Health and other insurance programs will have summer prepay deductions if:

  • Their academic (9 month) or annual (12 month) contract does not include work during one or more summer months; and
  • They are expected to return to benefits eligible employment on or before the start of the fall semester; and
  • They are eligible to maintain insurance coverage through the summer months.

For detailed information on which plans summer prepays are deducted, the deduction timeline and how life events (employment or family status changes) could affect deductions, review:
