New Web Page Available on Benefits While on Unpaid Leave

The Payroll section of the Controller's Office website now includes detailed information on Payroll and Benefits Information for Employees on Unpaid Leave. Intended to consolidate information to help employees understand their benefits coverage while on unpaid leave, topics include:

  • Benefits eligibility while on leave
  • How to maintain and pay for benefits while on leave
  • Returning to work and resuming benefits coverage
  • How to suspend some voluntary payroll deductions

Currently, payments for benefits coverage while on leave must be made by check. Work is underway to enable benefits payments by credit card; look for an announcement in a future edition of the Controller's Office Newsletter.
