Employee Benefits

Blue Ridge CTC provides a comprehensive benefits package for benefits-eligible employees. For most benefits, there is little to no probationary period for eligibility once a member of the team.  The benefits, programs, and services offered are a sizable amount of an employee’s total compensation and important factors in promoting a healthy work/life balance. Please see an HR Representative for complete eligibility information for each respective benefit.

We aim to provide detailed information on the benefit plans offered by the College in order to educate employees on the available options that allow for informed decisions as to what meets their needs.

The College has 3 typical enrollment periods: new hire, open enrollment and special enrollment due to qualifying life event (life status change).  New employee enrollment takes place during the first two months of employment.  The annual Open Enrollment period, held in April of each year, provides for a routine opportunity for employees to review their benefits and make any necessary changes or adjustments.  Employees are encouraged to take time to periodically review (at least annually) their benefit selections or following a qualifying life event (i.e., birth of child or marriage).

Please utilize the following links for provider self-service websites and documents.  Please note that the majority of your benefits can be managed online from initial enrollment forward.
