I am taking a new position January 1.  My SLAC's semester ends December 14.  Can I say my resignation is effective 12/31?  We will be on break, but I need the health coverage to continue.

Any advice is most appreciated!

Your effective date of resignation should be the last day of your actual contract, not your last teaching day - which probably means 12/31? My contract runs from 7/1 to 6/30, so my resignation is effective on 6/30 - despite the fact that my teaching responsibilities are only from 8/15 to 5/15 each year. Check with HR on the exact contract date - it's probably different from your teaching dates.

At our institution, if you are employed on the first day of the month, your health coverage is for the whole month, even if you resign on the 2nd. You might want to check with HR.
