  • Insurance Plans and Eligibility

    Pekin Public Schools District 108 offers all full-time employees the eligibility to enroll in the District's health and dental insurance plans.  Full time employees are those required to work 30 or more hours per week.


    You may also enroll your eligible dependents, your lawful spouse, and/or your dependent child(ren) under age 26 (age 30 if military) and/or your disabled adult dependent.


    The District offers two available health insurance plans, PPO-1 and PPO-2, and a dental insurance plan.  If you are enrolled in the District insurance, you will have a medical plan and the dental plan.  We do not offer just medical insurance or just dental insurance.  All plans are through United Healthcare of River Valley.  Plan details are included below.
