  • The BELI form should be completed and signed by the employee and retained by the department. It is not sent to Payroll or the Benefits Office.
  • Full Benefits (BELI = 1): 50% time for a year (12 months) or more. To maintain eligibility, employee must maintain an average regular paid time of at least 17.5 hours per week (43.75% time).
  • Mid-level Benefits (BELI = 3): 100% time for at least three months. To maintain eligibility, employee must maintain an average regular paid time of at least 17.5 hours per week (43.75%).

If the employee is eligible for Full Benefits (BELI 1), Mid-level Benefits (BELI 3) or Core Benefits (BELI 4), give the person the appropriate Benefits information. For BELI 1 and 3, let the employee know that enrollment in the health and welfare plans must occur during the 31-day period of initial eligibility (PIE), which starts when first eligible for benefits.

1000 Hour Policy for Non-Student Tutors and Readers - update in progress

Effective January 1, 2001, an employee appointed as a non-student Tutor or Reader (and most other non-student academic and staff titles) will become a University of California Retirement Program (UCRP) member after accumulating 1,000 hours on pay status during a rolling 12-month period (with no break-in-service exceeding 120 days). Once the employee reaches 1000 hours they become eligible for full benefits (BELI = 1).

  • The hiring department should update the assigned BELI code to “1” once the employee reaches 1000 hours.

In addition, the employee must enroll in the health and welfare plans by completing the UPAY 850 form http://ucnet.universityofcalifornia.edu/forms/pdf/upay-850.pdf during their 31-day period of initial eligibility (PIE), which starts when they become eligible for benefits. (For an employee paid monthly, the PIE starts the first day of the month after the employee reaches 1,000 hours on pay status.) If they fail to enroll during their PIE, they will be defaulted into single-party coverage for Core Medical, Delta Dental, and the Vision Service Plan.

Important: Employees must maintain an average regular paid time of at least 17.5 hours per week (43.75% or more), and remain in an eligible appointment, for continued eligibility at this benefit level.
