LIFE & DISABILITY

[CLIENT NAME] provides you with Basic & Voluntary Life/AD&D coverage as well as Short- and Long-Term Disability through [CARRIER NAME].


Basic Life/AD&D

Employees working [30 or more] hours per week are eligible for [$XXX] coverage payable to your designated beneficiary in the event of your death. An additional accidental death & dismemberment benefit (AD&D) is payable to you in the event of a covered dismemberment or to your beneficiary if your death is the result of an accident.


Voluntary Life/AD&D

A sudden accident or death can leave you or your loved ones in a vulnerable position. Employees have the opportunity to enroll in Term Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment insurance which will supplement lost income in the event of an accident or death. If you choose to enroll in employee coverage, this will be in addition to your employer provided Basic Life coverage.


Who''s Your Beneficiary? Naming a beneficiary is a crucial part of electing life insurance. Also, don''t forget to update your primary or secondary beneficiary if you experience a life event, such as a divorce or birth of a child.


Short Term Disability

Everyday illnesses or injuries can interfere with your ability to work. Even a few weeks away from work can make it difficult to manage household costs. Short Term Disability coverage provides financial protection for you by paying a portion of your income, so you can focus on getting better and worry less about keeping up with your bills. Your coverage through [CARRIER] pays [XX%] of your income to a maximum of [$XXX] per week.


Long Term Disability

Serious illnesses or accidents can interrupt your life, and your ability to work for months – even years. Long Term Disability provides financial protection for you by paying a portion of your income, so you have financial support to manage your disability and your household. Benefits begin after a [XX] day elimination period are are equal to [XX%] of covered monthly earnings up to [$XXX] for full-time employees.


Please consult your Employee Benefits Guide and review the benefit summaries for additional details.

FSA

Flexible Spending Accounts

Enrollment for the FSA plans occurs in the fall for the calendar year. The Health Care and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible expenses. By contributing to one or both of the Flexible Spending Accounts you reduce your taxable income, so you pay less in taxes — which saves you money.


Contributions

The election you make during enrollment is your election for the entire plan year. You may change it only if you have a qualifying life event and the change request must be consistent with the event.


You may contribute as follows:

Health Care FSA

  • Up to [$2,750] annually
  • All benefit eligible can participate, unless you or your spouse are contributing to an HSA.
  • Reimbursements allowed for unreimbursed medical, prescription, dental, and vision expenses


Dependent Care FSA

  • Up to [$5,000] annually
  • Limited to [$2,500] if you are married and file separate tax returns


How the Plan Works

You must incur your eligible expenses during the plan year — January 1 to December 31. An expense is considered to be incurred when the service is performed, not when you are billed or pay for the service. You do, however, have until March 31st annually to file your claims. Any funds after March 31 unclaimed will be forfeited.

HSA

Health Savings Account

The Health Savings Account (HSA) allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible expenses. By contributing to a HSA you reduce your taxable income, so you pay less in taxes — which saves you money.


To be eligible for an HSA, you must be enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP).


You may contribute as follows:

[$3,600] for a single contract

[$7,200] for a two person or family
