SDC-LEAGUE HEALTH PLAN
The SDC-League Health Plan is a multi-employer Plan that is maintained and operated according to collective bargaining agreements between contributing employers and SDC, subject to the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). You are eligible to participate in the Health Plan if you are employed under one or more SDC contracts and sufficient employer contributions are made to the SDC-League Health Fund on your behalf.
These descriptions are SUMMARIES ONLY. For more complete information, please contact the Fund Office at 800-317-9373 or 212-869-8129. You may also contact the Fund’s Third Party Administrator, Benserco, Inc., at 201-947-8000. Email us at Health@SDCweb.org
You are eligible to participate in the health plan if you are employed under a Stage Directors and Choreographers Society contract and sufficient contributions are made to the SDC-League Health Fund on your behalf.
To be eligible for benefits, employer contributions of at least $1,100 (going to $1,200 effective July 1, 2016) must accrue on your behalf during a six-month contribution cycle as outlined below. In addition, your first rehearsal date(s) must fall within the corresponding six-month cycle. Note that the start date of your eligibility will be based upon both an adequate contribution level and the start date of your rehearsal period(s), regardless of when the contributions are due or paid.
CONTRIBUTION CYCLES & ELIGIBILITY PERIODS
- If $1,100 accrues for you from January 1, 2016through June 30, 2016, you have eligibility from September 1, 2016through February 28, 2017.
- If $1,200 accrues for you from July 1, 2016through December 31, 2016, you have eligibility from March 1, 2017through August 31, 2017.
If $2,300 accrues on your behalf from January 1, 2016 through June 30, 2016, you will have a year of coverage from September 1, 2016 through August 31, 2017.
If $2,400 accrues on your behalf from July 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016, you will have a year of coverage from March 1, 2017 through February 28, 2018.
If contributions accrued on your behalf in a six-month contribution cycle exceed the minimum threshold, but do not reach double the minimum threshold, you may apply the excess to the next contribution cycle to help meet the minimum required for the next eligibility period.
