2017 Productivity Enhancement

2017 Productivity Enhancement Program (PEP)

The Productivity Enhancement Program (PEP) for 2017 allows eligible employees to exchange previously accrued annual leave (vacation) for a credit to be applied toward their employee-share NYSHIP premiums on a biweekly basis. In no case can the credit available under the program be applied to the employer share of NYSHIP premiums.

Eligible full-time employees who enroll in PEP for the 2017 plan year will forfeit annual leave at the time of enrollment in return for a credit to be applied towards the employee share of their NYSHIP premiums, in accordance with PEP guidelines for their employment group (e.g., CSEA, M/C, PEF, UUP). Eligible part-time employees who enroll in PEP will forfeit annual leave, in accordance with the PEP guidelines for their employment group.

The enrollment period for the 2017 PEP program year will be from November 1, 2016 through December 2, 2016.

Please visit the links below to obtain the PEP program descriptions and enrollment forms for the variously represented and unrepresented groups of employees. Completed enrollment forms must be submitted to campus HR/Benefits offices by December 2, 2016.
