An Important Message for Employees Not Enrolled in a CalPERS Health Plan


The $260 monthly “health care stipend” paid to SEIU Local 1000-represented workers who are not currently enrolled in a CalPERS health plan ends effective with the July 2022 pay period.

The end of this benefit (only for those not currently enrolled in a CalPERS health plan) is in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and the Personal Leave Program (PLP) 2020 Side Letter.

If you are a state worker represented by Local 1000 and enrolled in a CalPERS health plan, you will continue to receive the $260 benefit through June 2023.
