If you experience a Qualifying Life Event (QLE), you may be eligible to make changes to your benefit elections outside of the annual open enrollment period. To learn more about what meets the requirements of a QLE, click here.
If you do meet the requirements of a QLE, you will need to complete the enrollment form for the plan (health, dental and/or vision) and submit to the Benefits Administrator. In addition to the enrollment form, you must also submit appropriate corresponding documentation of the QLE (marriage license, divorce decree, birth certificate, proof of other coverage, etc).
To make pretax contributions to your HSA in 2018, you will select your contribution through the online Open Enrollment website. Remember, you can make a change to your HSA contribution at any time during the year by completing an HSA Employee Contribution Form and submitting to the Conference Benefits Administrator.
A: Once you have finalized your 2018 elections (even if you are not making any changes), you can complete the 2018 Payroll Withholding Summary and return to your church treasurer/administrator. Please keep in mind that completing this form DOES NOT enroll you in any of the health or retirement savings (UMPIP) plans. This form is a planning/informational tool to help your employer with your payroll withholdings.
