New Employee Benefit Enrollment

Mar 25, 2024, 14:35 PM by MOSERS
I am a new employee and I have set up my retirement. I have received one paycheck so far and my question is, is it too late to make changes? Do I need to wait for open enrollment?

As a new employee with the state of Missouri, you should have received instructions to enroll in SEBES, the Statewide Employee Benefit Enrollment System. Visit and log in with your SEBES password before the deadline, which is 31 days from your hire date. After the deadline, you must contact the appropriate benefit provider(s) directly to determine eligibility.

Once you are enrolled, you have access to a defined benefit pension, life insurance, and long-term disability benefits through MOSERS. We also have webinars available for new state employees who would like to learn more about their pension, life insurance, and long-term disability benefits. You can register via GoTo Webinar for a daytime webinar or evening webinar.

In addition to these benefits, you are automatically enrolled in the MO Deferred Comp plan at the minimum of 1% contribution per pay period. Your contribution can be adjusted at any time and is made through automatic payroll deductions. If you choose to opt out of the deferred compensation plan's auto-enrollment, you must do so by adjusting your contribution to zero within 30 days of your hire date. Employees who opt out within this time frame will receive a refund of any contributions they made to their MO Deferred Comp account. Please visit for more information, or if you have any questions, please call (800) 392-0925.
