PEBB benefits: Recurring seasonal appointments

Summer is almost upon us, bringing with it the annual influx of seasonally hired non-student temporary employees (NSTE). As a reminder, NSTE’s hired by WSU on a recurring seasonal basis may be eligible for PEBB employer-paid benefits.

HRS monitors NSTE appointments to identify potentially benefit-eligible individuals who work on a seasonal basis, and will contact departments if it appears someone has met the eligibility criterion.  We will also utilize information provided via TEMPs. In the event a department knows they will be rehiring a NSTE this year who also worked for them last spring/summer, please notify HRS.

A Frequently Asked Questions website is available at the HRS website. This site will also address how WSU views hourly employees who may be students during a portion of the year, and whether the PEBB seasonal benefits may be applicable to them.

Notification and questions can be directed to HRS at (509)335-4521 or hrs@wsu.edu. If you would like to discuss seasonal benefits eligibility, please let us know!
