Benefits Information

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Middlebury College’s Health Plan has a “Coordination of Benefits” provision that requires CBA Blue to maintain information on file regarding other insurance coverage you or your dependents may have.  Annually CBA Blue sends out a Coordination of Benefits form that all enrolled employees must complete to ensure proper processing of your health insurance claims.  You should receive the form from CBA Blue within the next few days.  Please be sure to complete it and return it to them as instructed.  This form is required for all enrolled employees (even if you and your dependents do not have other insurance).  This information is necessary for proper processing of your claims in a timely manner.  Failure to provide accurate information on other coverage may result in serious financial consequences.

Employing Middlebury Students this Summer

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

You may be thinking about employing a Middlebury College student to work in your department this summer. What a great opportunity for both you and the student! The student can learn important skills (or enhance those they already have) that they will use throughout their life – customer service, time management, conflict resolution, verbal and written communication skills, and so on.

The Student Employment Office Web page has been updated to reflect this summer’s procedures and policies http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/business/seo/summer.

Please familiarize yourself with these policies so you are well informed and can provide information to the student(s) you hire.

Fac/Staff Lunchtime Soccer

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

We (Peter Kim, Mike Roy, Peter Matthews) are trying to organize regular noon-time pick-up soccer for faculty and staff (like the decades old basketball games in Pepin) in the new Virtue Fieldhouse. At this point, we plan to reserve the Fieldhouse on (at least) Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at noon. (We’ve already enjoyed a couple of 3 v 3 scrimmages!) Peter (Kim) has more than enough soccer balls, pinnies, connies and PUGG goals to accommodate simultaneous games if needed.

If you’re interested, please e-mail Peter Kim (ptkim@middlebury.edy), Mike Roy (mdroy@middlebury.edu) or Peter Matthews (pmatthew@middlebury.edu) with the subject heading “Fac/Staff Lunchtime Soccer” and let us know what days work best for you, and whether you’d like to be added to a regular e-mail distribution list.
