    Ends May 13

    This year's medical, dental and FSA Open Enrollment will be held April 25 - May 13.

    Employees who want to participate in the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) program for FY2017 must enroll/re-enroll during Open Enrollment.

    ***Navia will be managing the rollover funds and claims runout period from fiscal year 2016 (FY2016) in addition to the new fiscal year 2017 (FY2017) funds. Please see the newsletter for additional details.***

    Employees do not need to reenroll for medical or dental coverage. However, Open Enrollment is the only time to change from one medical plan to another, add previously declined dependent dental coverage or change medical/dental premium withholding from pre-tax to post-tax (or vice versa).

Total Compensation Statement

    The Department of Administration, Office of Group Insurance, in cooperation with the State Controller’s Office, is very pleased to announce the NEW Total Compensation Statement. This statement has been several years in the making and we are very excited to illustrate the State’s total investment in you.

    Statements are available for all active employees who are paid through the State Controller’s Office payroll system, except those with a ‘daily rate’ of pay. The inform ation is an annual estimate based on current payroll records. If you are an employee working for multiple agencies you will have a statement for each agency. If you are an employee working in multiple positions within the same agency your statement will be based on the position with the highest pay rate.

    Links to the statement can be found on the State Controller’s Application Selection Menu under Admin-Comp & Benefit Statement.

    This statement is informational only and should not be relied on for any other purpose.
