Open Enrollment


FLEX Spending Account - FSA: 
for staff who wish to flex dependent care or for staff NOT on the Hayward School District health insurance plan.

2018 EMPLOYEE FLEX BENEFIT PLAN

For Dependent Care and FSA ONLY

It's time to designate how much you wish to put into your flex spending account for the year 2018 through payroll deductions beginning with your 1/12/2018 payroll.  The online enrollment will be open November 1 - November 15, 2017, but do not wait until the last minute as enrollments will not be accepted after that date. Contact Sheila Turnbull if you would like a paper packet of this information sent to you.

1. GROUP MEDICAL INSURANCE PREMIUMS:

If you are paying part of your group medical premiums, the district will automatically be treating your deduction as pretax and running the premiums through the flex plan for you.  If you do not want your deductions treated as pretax, it is necessary for you to notify me in writing each year that you DO NOT want to flex your premium deductions.

 2. HEALTH CARE FLEX SPENDING ACCOUNT:

 ONLY IF YOU DO NOT HAVE DISTRICT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN

If you currently are not enrolled in the District sponsored insurance plan, you may elect to have up to $2,650 placed into the health care flex spending account through payroll deductions beginning 1/12/2018.   Please be conservative because whatever you do not use will be lost, it will not roll-over to the year 2019. Be sure that you are eligible based on your current health insurance plan.    

 

3. DEPENDENT CARE FLEX SPENDING ACCOUNT: 

The maximum allowable amount that can be flexed is $5,000 per family for 2018.
