Enrollment is a two part process for DCSS employees, please make sure you complete the enrollment process on both websites. You must make your Medical Insurance elections through the State Health ADP enrollment portal and your Non-Medical/local Benefit elections such as Dental, Vision, Life and Disability through the ShawHankins bswift enrollment portal.  Please print a copy of your final confirmation statements from both enrollment portals for your records and one to turn into your Benefits Specialist.

New Hire Enrollment Checklist

If you are transferring from another school district in Georgia your State Health Benefit Coverage will transfer over to DCSS, and you will be unable to make a change.  Your voluntary benefits do NOT transfer and you will need to make new elections on these benefits through the ShawHankins portal listed below.
