Leaving County of Santa Barbara by Separation or Retiring

Upon separation from County employment, there are several benefit options still available to you after employment.  Even though the County will no longer contribute to the cost of benefits, you will have access to some benefits such as medical and dental insurance under the federal Cobra continuation provisions.  In order to continue a benefit, you must already be enrolled as an active employee.  You may not enroll for a new benefit after your employment ends.


To find out what your current employee benefits include, check the County's Employee Self-Service website.This website will be available to you for one year after you separate.  If you still receive paper copies of your Earnings Statement, you will find your health plans listed there, in addition to any deductions for voluntary coverage you have elected.  The earnings statement, however, does not list the County-provided life and LTD insurance program coverage.
