Baker Boy automatically provides you with Basic Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) of $15,000. For Managers, Supervisors and Team Leaders the benefit is $25,000. The benefit for a spouse is $5,000 and $2,500 for children. Eligible employees are automatically enrolled in the company paid benefits when they become benefit eligible.

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
Baker Boy provides full-time employees, who have worked at least 12 consecutive months, with short term disability income benefits– at no cost to you! Without disability coverage, you and your family may struggle to get by if you miss work due to an injury or illness.
Voluntary Short Term Disability
The voluntary short term disability policy includes:
• Plan pays on the 8th day of an accident/injury
• Benefit rages from $50 to $1,000 per week, not to exceed maximum salary percentage of 60%
• Plan pays up to 13 weeks
• Includes Maternity leave benefit
Please keep in mind that this benefit is in addition to the Baker Boy paid short term disability plan.
Please consult your Employee Benefits Guide and review the plan summaries for additional details.
The Health Care and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and the Health Savings Account (HSA) allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible expenses. By contributing to an FSA or HSA you reduce your taxable income, so you pay less in taxes — which saves you money.
HEALTH CARE FSA
DEPENDENT CARE FSA
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.
How the FSA 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.
HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNT (HSA)
How the HSA Plan Works
You may use your HSA funds to pay for eligible medical, prescription drug, dental or vision expenses. Unused funds remain in your account for future use and roll over each calendar year. You can change your HSA contribution at any time during the plan year for any reason.
