Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for Carewell SEIU 503 Employee Assistance Program benefits you must:


You must work at least 40 eligible working hours* for 2 months in a row to be eligible for these benefits. Once you have met this requirement, there will be a 1-month waiting period after you turn in your timesheets and/or payroll vouchers. During this waiting period, the State, Acumen, or PPL will report your hours to Carewell SEIU 503.

Turn in your timesheets and/or payroll vouchers on a regular basis.


Have your name, gender, Social Security number, birth date, and current address on file with Carewell SEIU 503.

These eligibility requirements are the same for the Dental, Vision + Hearing, and Employee Assistance Program (DVE) benefits. 

* Eligible working hours

The number of eligible working hours you need to qualify for Carewell benefits are the work hours paid by Acumen, DHS, and/or PPL on behalf of your consumer.


Losing eligibility

You may lose eligibility for Carewell SEIU 503 benefits (Dental, Vision + Hearing, EAP, and Healthcare Cost Assistance) if you have 2 months in a row with 0 hours of work. After those 2 months, you’ll have a grace period of 1 more month before your benefits end.

Mail will be sent out to care providers letting them know they might be losing their benefits. These notifications also include information about continuing Dental, Vision and Hearing, and EAP coverage through COBRA.

If you decide to stay on DVE benefits through COBRA, this means you will now have to pay for premiums by sending payment to our COBRA Administrator, Ameriflex.

You can also regain eligibility by meeting the requirements listed above.


Dental, Vision + Hearing, and Employee Assistance Program benefits will be set up automatically for you once you:

  • meet the Eligibility Requirements explained above;
  • update Carewell SEIU 503 and the State with your name, gender, Social Security number, and current address. 

Enrollment Confirmation

You will not receive a card for your Employee Assistance Program benefits, but you will receive information about this benefit in the mail from Carewell SEIU 503. 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.
