System Employee Benefits Advisory Committee (SEBAC)

SEBAC Defined: SEBAC stands for System Employee Benefits Advisory Committee. This committee is an advisory group that makes recommendations to The Texas A&M University System administration on various issues relating to employee benefits. The group is responsible for working with the System Risk Management/Benefits Administration Office to advise about the benefits programs and packages offered to A&M System employees and retirees. SEBAC is governed by System Regulation 31.02.03.

SEBAC Representative Duties: The SEBAC representative represents the benefit needs and concerns of all University benefits-eligible employees, including faculty, staff and graduate student employees, as well as representing the needs of University retirees. The SEBAC representative should demonstrate mature judgment, special abilities toward and the sincere interest in employee insurance programs, and be able to represent the needs of all employees during the duration of the two-year term. To serve effectively in this capacity, it is necessary for the SEBAC representative to commit sufficient time to solicit input and feedback from constituents about benefits coverage for employees and retirees, and attend quarterly and other subcommittee meetings.
