Flexcomp is a
flexible benefit and compensation program that lets you decide how to use your
pay and benefits most effectively. A key feature of Flexcomp is that currently
you do not pay federal taxes on any benefits you select under the Flexcomp
program. In addition, any contributions you make to your retirement savings
are on a federal tax-deferred basis.
If elected, the health care
benefits are effective the first of the month after your date of hire.
However, if your date of hire is the first working day of the month then
coverage is effective the first of the month in which you were hired. You pay
for the premium costs using pre-tax dollars. You may opt for
individual, two-party or family coverage for your spouse or eligible same sex
domestic partner and dependent unmarried children less than age 26.
Employees have the option of enrolling or changing their enrollment: 1) within
the first 31 days of becoming a full-time employee, 2) through the open
enrollment process which allows non-participating and participating eligible
employees to enroll, change, or cancel coverage on July 1 of each year, or 3)
when certain family status changes occur, such as the birth of a baby. Contact
Human Resource Services for further information.
