School Employees' Health Benefits Program

Eligibility for Active Group coverage is determined by the School Employees' Health Benefits Program (SEHBP). All enrollments, changes to coverage, terminations, etc. must go through your employer.

Full-time Employees

To be eligible, you must be a full-time employee or an appointed official from a local board of education employer that participates in the SEHBP. Each employer decides the minimum hours to be considered full-time by a resolution filed with the NJDPB, but it cannot be less than 25 hours per week. Employment must also be for 12 months per year, except for employees whose usual work schedule is 10 months per year (the standard school year).

Part-time Employees

Certain part-time employees are eligible for coverage. See the fact sheet below for more information.

Local Education Employee Dental Plan Applications


Please Note: Completed applications must be returned to your human resources representative or benefits administrator for certification. Do not submit your application directly to the NJDPB.

All covered employees must have access to prescription drug coverage. The type of coverage provided and costs are determined by the option offered by your employer and the medical plan you select.
