Employee Benefits

Board Information

Due to the Act 1004 of 2021, the duties of the State and Public-School Life and Health Insurance Board have been transferred to the State Board of Finance to further develop health and life insurance benefits for State and Public School employees and retirees.

Through this transition, Department of Transformation and Shared Services: Employee Benefits Division (TSS EBD) is committed to ensuring the long-term viability of health insurance and other products for employees, retirees and their families. Although the governance of the division has changed, the mission remains the same: to ensure that members receive quality health care at an affordable cost while promoting exceptional customer service, education and accessibility.

Members with questions or concerns regarding the impact of Act 1004 are encouraged to contact TSS EBD through phone at 877-815-1017 (press 1, then 2), or via email at AskEBD@dfa.arkansas.gov.
