Multiple Consecutive Appointments

The special rules below apply to all Benefit Levels.

If the employee is given multiple appointments that run consecutively without a break in service, and you know about both appointments at the time of hire, combine the appointments to determine the Benefit Level.

For example: Employee has two appointments, both at 100%. The first starts 01/01/04 and ends 05/31/04. The second starts 6/01/04 and ends 12/31/04. When you add the two appointments together they add up to 1 year. Since they are both 100%, the employee will be assigned Full Benefits on 1/1/04.

If the employee is given multiple appointments that run consecutively without a break in service, but the second appointment is added after the first, add the time together to determine the new Benfit Level at the time the second appointment begins.

For example: Employee has one appointment at 100% from 01/01/04 until 05/31/04. Assign a Mid Level on 1/1/04. The second appointment is later approved and is 100% from 6/01/04 to 12/31/04. On 6/1/04, add the two appointments together and determine the Benefit Level. In this case, employee can be assigned Full Benefits on 6/1/04.
