When does eligibility for the employer contribution for school employees benefits board (SEBB) benefits end?

(1) The employer contribution toward school employees benefits board (SEBB) benefits ends the last day of the month in which the school year ends. The employer contribution toward SEBB benefits will end earlier than the end of the school year if one of the following occurs:
(a) The SEBB organization terminates the employment relationship. In this case, eligibility for the employer contribution ends the last day of the month in which the employer-initiated termination notice is effective;
(b) The school employee terminates the employment relationship. In this case, eligibility for the employer contribution ends the last day of the month in which the school employee's resignation is effective; or
(c) The school employee's work pattern is revised such that the school employee is no longer anticipated to work six hundred thirty hours during the school year. In this case, eligibility for the employer contribution ends as of the last day of the month in which the change is effective.
(2) If the SEBB organization deducted the school employee's portion of the premium for SEBB insurance coverage from their pay after the school employee was no longer eligible for the employer contribution, SEBB benefits end the last day of the month for which school employee premiums were deducted to prevent a rescission of SEBB benefits. The SEBB organization must refund any premiums deducted for the school employee's portion of the premium that were deducted in advance of any month's coverage for which the school employee is no longer eligible for the employer contribution.
