Associated Files


You have the option to continue your State Health Plan and your NCFlex Insurance Plans during your Leave of Absence (LOA). This notice provides continuation instructions. 

If, during your LOA, you are using approved/accrued leave and your pay continues in full, your benefits will continue without interruption and you do not need to do anything.

If, during your LOA, you are not using approved/accrued leave and are without pay (LOA/LWOP), see below. This includes, but is not limited to, LOAs for Family Medical Leave (FMLA), Family Illness Leave, Extended Illness, and Military.

IMPORTANT: Employees on LOA receiving Short Term Disability benefits or Workers‘ Compensation benefits are considered to be on LOA without pay (LOA/LWOP) for benefits continuation. This includes LOA-Workers‘ Compensation with supplement.
