Seasonal Employees

If you work for the City of Boston as a seasonal employee, you are not eligible for benefits.

If you work for the Commonwealth and are considered a “long term seasonal” as defined by the Fund, you are eligible for benefits beginning the first day of the month upon completion of six full months of employment. You will be eligible when you return to your seasonal position on the first day of the month following a full calendar month (e.g., if you return May 15th, you will be eligible July 1st). You and your eligible dependents are entitled to an annual plan maximum that is equal to 50% of the annual plan maximum for non-seasonal eligible employees. Payments for covered preventive, diagnostic, periodontal scaling and root planing and orthodontic services are not deducted from this annual maximum.
