Flexible Benefit Plan:  All Must Complete Form whether participating or not.

FLEX Administration: The FLEX administrator will continue to be Employee Benefits Corporation (EBC). WI state law requires employers insurance plans to cover children (their child only not their child's spouse or their grandchild) through the end of the month they attain the age of 26 and therefore employees can plan for FLEX dollars for their dependents up to age 26 (even if they don't qualify as dependents for IRS purposes). If a child turns age 26 in plan year 2012, they are not eligible for FLEX reimbursement starting on January 1, 2013. (Click here for more details on FLEX Eligible Expense Examples.) 

Group Insurance (health and dental) Premiums: Group insurance premiums will be deducted pre-tax automatically. Email or contact Lara Baehr at 486-2004 if you do not want your group insurance premiums deducted pre-tax.

Medical Expense Flexible Spending Account: You MUST re-enroll in the program each year to participate. The annual maximum is $2,500 for 2014 due to mandatory federal health care reform.

Dependent Care Plan:  You MUST re-enroll in the program each year to participate.  The annual maximum is $5,000.

All elections made during annual enrollment will be effective January 1, 2014.  Contact me at 486-2004 if you have any questions.  Thank you.
