HEALTH INSURANCE: GIC
Health benefits are offered through the Town of North Andover. All employees who regularly work 18.75 hours or more per week in a 37.5-hour work-week or 20 hours in a 40-hour work-week are eligible for health benefits through the Group Insurance Commission (GIC). Forms must be submitted within 10 calendar days of your start date. Coverage begins on the first day of the month following 60 calendar days from the first date of employment or two calendar months (whichever comes first). New school year employees hired prior to September 2 begin coverage November 1.

UPDATE FROM GIC: MyGIC Link
The GIC requires online access for submitting forms and changes to coverage. Electronic signature tools are enabled, which speeds up the process considerably. Please reach out to Human Resources if you have any questions.
