Vision Summary


Gatesman provides you with employer paid Life/AD&D Insurance coverage, as well as Short-Term Disability through Guardian Life Insurance Company. You can also purchase additional Life Insurance for you and your dependents, as well as Long Term Disability.

Basic Life/AD&D

Employees working 30 or more hours per week are eligible for Life Insurance 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.

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.

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. 

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

Flexible Spending Account

You can elect to set up a Flexible Spending Account, which is Pre-Tax Employee Funding for certain qualified benefits.

FSA's save on the cost of eligible healthcare and/or dependent care and commuter expenses

An FSA reduces income tax (Federal, State, and FICA) so the Pre-tax payroll contributions result in a lower taxable salary.

[Using pre-tax dollars spells out a savings of nearly thirty percent].

You will receive your own DEBIT CARD issued for ease of use.

Modified “Use it or Lost it” rule applies

Any funds left unused at the rest of the Plan Year are forfeited, with the exception of $500 which you may elect to rollover into future years.

Only “Qualifying Events” allow off-cycle changes.
