Appointment Extended

The special rules below apply to all Benefit Levels.

If the employee is given an appointment that is later extended, consider the total appointment to determine the new Benefit Level at the time the extension is granted.

For example: Employee has one appointment at 100% from 01/01/04 until 05/31/04. Assign a Mid Benefits Level on 1/1/04. An extension of the appointment is approved on 3/1/04, with a new end date of 12/31/04. On 3/1/04, consider the entire appointment (1/1/04 – 12/31/04) and re-determine the Benefit Level. In this case, employee will be assigned Full Benefits on 3/1/04.
