Check your Eligibility for EAP Benefits
To find out your eligibility instantly, answer a few questions on our eligibility questionnaire.
To be eligible for Carewell SEIU 503 Dental, Vision + Hearing, and Employee Assistance Program benefits you must:
Work 40 or more hours a month of eligible working hours — also known as bargaining unit hours — for two months in a row. There is then a one month waiting period while your hours are reported to the Benefits Administrative Office.
Turn in your timesheets and/or payroll vouchers on a regular basis
When we talk about the number of “working hours” you need to be eligible for Carewell benefits, that means the hours paid by DHS and/or PPL on behalf of your consumer.
If you go two months in a row without working (or if zero hours are reported), after a grace period of one month you will no longer be eligible for Dental, Vision + Hearing, and Employee Assistance Program benefits. To regain eligibility for Carewell SEIU 503 benefits, you must complete the steps above.
If you have questions about your eligibility please call the Benefits Administrative Office at 1-844-507-7554, option 3, option 2
Dental, Vision + Hearing, and Employee Assistance Program benefits will be set up automatically for you once you:
- meet the Eligibility Requirements explained above;
- update the Benefits Administrative Office and the State with your name, gender, Social Security Number and current address.
You will not receive a card for your Employee Assistance Program benefits, but you will receive information about this benefit in the mail from the Benefits Administrative Office. Note that because the eligibility requirements are the same for Dental, Vision + Hearing, and Employee Assistance Program benefits you will know you are eligible for the EAP when you receive your cards for Dental and Vision + Hearing.
