Your last month
Please refer to the Leaving the University page for information regarding your benefits and rights as you leave your employment. If you have questions regarding your benefits continuation, please contact the Core Benefits Consultant Gerald Leapheart II at (919) 962-9684 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you currently have health insurance coverage through UNC, the coverage will end on the last day of the month in which you separate employment. However, the Health Insurance benefit will extend through the following month if the date of separation is on or after the 16th of the month. However, in rare instances when the amount of the last paycheck is insufficient to cover the insurance premiums, your coverage may be terminated early. Please contact the Core Benefits Consultant Gerald Leapheart II at (919) 962-9684 or email@example.com, for more details.
Unused accumulated sick leave is not paid upon departure. However, it will be reinstated if you return to state employment as a permanent employee regularly scheduled to work 20 hours or more per week within five years of the last date of eligibility to earn leave. Unused accumulated sick leave is reported to the Retirement System (TSERS plan participants only) for additional credit if your retirement effective date is within five years of the termination of your employment.
