Full-time, permanent employees receive several benefits through the State of Minnesota. Part-time employees may also be eligible for benefits; check with your Human Resources office or refer to your union contract for specific information on eligibility and level of employer contribution.

New employees wishing to enroll eligible dependents in health and/or dental insurance must do so within 35 days of their hire date. Current employees moving into a benefit-eligible position must enroll dependents within 30 days. If you do not enroll dependents during these time frames, you will be enrolled into single coverage and will need to wait for an open enrollment period to enroll your dependents.
