1. Am I eligible?
To qualify, an MTA employee has to be full time and working a 40-hour work week as an hourly employee in one of the following categories:
– Maintenance
– Transportation
– Revenue agents

2. When am I eligible for benefits?
As new employees, you are eligible for benefits 30 days following the day of hire once training is complete. At that point, you have 30 days to sign up for benefits via this website. If you do not sign up during that 30-day period, you will not be eligible to apply until the regular open enrollment period.
3. What is the period of coverage once I am enrolled?
All coverage follows our fiscal year period that runs from Sept. 1st through August 31st of the following year.
4. Who is covered?
The employee, common law spouses, and dependants up to the age of 25-years-old (whether in college or not).
5. How do I renew?
During open enrollment, employees can make changes to their coverage. If an employee has a court order (child support) in place no changes can be made to their coverage.
6. If I am retired, am I still eligible for coverage?
As a retiree/surviving spouse you are still eligible for medical, dental, and vision benefits. Upon retiring if you are not enrolled, you can still do so. Once enrolled, if you terminate your coverage as a retiree/surviving spouse, you will not be eligible for coverage at any future date.
