MCPS Member Exclusive Benefits
MCPS/SEIU Local 500 Sick Leave Bank
The Sick Leave Bank is a negotiated benefit between MCPS and SEIU Local 500 for all supporting service employees. SEIU Local 500 prepares and processes all Sick Leave Bank grant requests on behalf of the Sick Leave Bank Committee for them to review.
The purpose of the Bank is the provide continued pay to members of the Bank for a qualifying, personal illness that is incapacitating to the point where a person cannot perform their duties during regularly scheduled duty days. All sick leave must first be exhausted and a two day waiting period must also be satisfied. The Bank is for personal illness suffered only by the contributing member of the Bank.
SEIU Local 500 has teamed up with SF&C Associates to offer MCPS supporting services union members special rates for disability income protection, catastrophic protection and universal life insurance. Union members not only get special rates, but can opt for a convenient payroll deduction for their premiums.
Local 500 does not administer the benefits. For questions about premiums or benefits, contact SF&C Insurance Associates at:
