Dependent Eligibility Verification Audit

To ensure that employees' dependents will not lose their health insurance coverage, verification forms and supporting documents need to be returned to HMS Employer Solutions no later than October 30, 2015. Information is on the Human Resource Services website.

The Operating Staff Council is here to represent all operating staff employees in the shared governance at NIU. Please feel free to contact any OSC member if you have questions or concerns. The OSC meetings are open meetings and anyone can attend. 

  • Meetings are held the first Thursday of each month at 9:00 a.m.
  • Usually OSC meetings for 2015-2016 will be held in the Holmes Student Center Sky Room. Please check here in case there is a room change.
  • View current meeting minutes. The November agenda is not available at this time.
