For New Employees

Welcome to the State of Tennessee Group Insurance Program

The state's insurance program offers comprehensive coverage for state and higher education employees and participating local education and local government employees.

On this page you will find an online benefits orientation presentation, eligibility and enrollment guides, forms and other resources that explain the benefits available to you as a new employee. It is important that you understand your benefits and make informed decisions now since some of these benefits are only available during your initial eligibility period.

Your human resource director or agency benefits coordinator will be able to answer any benefits-related questions you may have and help you enroll. You may also contact Benefits Administration with questions.
