Human Resources

Employees utilizing bereavement leave should be reminded that when completing their timesheet or leave report, information should be provided in the COMMENTS section that indicates:

* The name of the deceased
* The relationship to the deceased
* Date of death

Human Resources will be monitoring the correct usage and reporting of all bereavement leave. Both employees and supervisors are responsible for the correct reporting of time worked and leave time usage.

Negotiated employees should refer to their negotiated contracts for bereavement information. Non-negotiated employees can review IGP #4 for EIU's bereavement policy by clicking here.

Now is the time to familiarize yourself with the CMS MyBenefits Marketplace! You will need to use the state's new benefits website during Benefit Choice or if you experience a qualifying event. Benefit Choice is fast approaching (month of May) and in order to access the website, you will first need a login and password to access the new system. Prior to Benefit Choice period arriving, we encourage everyone to log in here, review your personal details on the new website, and enter your email address to receive state benefit alerts.

Please log in to MyBenefits Marketplace by using your CMS-issued Employee ID Number (EIN), or click on "register" for the first time process once you've navigated to the above website and selected the State Employees Group Insurance Program (SEGIP).

For assistance with your login information or your state benefit plans (health, dental, life insurance and flexible spending accounts), contact the MyBenefits Marketplace Service Center:
