About San Diego Unified Employee Benefits

The San Diego Unified School District belongs to the California Schools Voluntary Employee Benefits Association (CA Schools VEBA). Since 1993, VEBA has been providing management of Southern California's largest federally-funded trust that specializes in providing health care benefits for education employees. VEBA was created as a voluntary joint labor-management benefits organization and was established through the combined efforts of school superintendents and representatives of both the California Teachers Association (CTA) and the California School Employees Association (CSEA).


The district offers a generous and comprehensive benefits package to eligible employees and their eligible dependents. No employee contribution is required for eligible employees in paid status in monthly salaried positions of half-time or more. The district pays the full monthly premium cost for the medical, dental and vision plans selected by the employee which cover both the employee and all of their eligible dependents. The district also pays the cost of Basic Life and AD&D insurance for eligible employees.

Please refer to the 2024 Employee Benefits Information Guide for additional information.

Employees in certificated job-share assignments may be required to contribute toward the cost of their health coverage, and that amount may change annually. Premium changes are announced during the annual Open Enrollment period in October/November. Any required employee contribution is made through automatic payroll deduction on a ten-month basis, August to May.
