Eligible employee means all employees except student employees, unless such student employees are employed on a continuous basis and meet the 1,000-hours-worked-per-year requirement.
Individuals deemed by the plan administrator as independent contractors are not eligible to participate in this plan. You must be at least age 21 or older to participate in the plan.
Eligible employees may begin participation in this plan on or after the first day of the month after completing two years of service without a break in service at the University. For the purposes of these participation requirements, the term "year of service" means a 12-month period, starting with the date you start working for the university (or the date you become eligible for the plan), during which you complete 1,000 or more hours of service.
Years of service with an eligible institution at which you worked before becoming employed by Marquette may be counted under this plan. You should check with the Department of Human Resources at the time you are hired to see if this provision applies.
