Targeted Email Regarding 9-Month Faculty Summer Deductions
Below please find a targeted email that went out on Tuesday to all 9-month
faculty paid over 9 months.  This is an annual notification to let them know
how their benefits deductions will be handled to ensure there is no
interruption to them.

Dear Colleague -

To ensure that there is no interruption to your health insurance and other
benefits during the summer months, deductions are taken from your March -
June pay checks to cover premiums for the summer. This year's process will
be the same as it has been in the past and the additional deductions will
begin with your paycheck of March 15, 2013. This email is just a reminder of
how this process will be handled:

Health Insurance: Beginning with your March 15 paycheck, one additional
deduction will be taken each paycheck to cover June, July & August premiums.
For example, if your health insurance premium is normally $21.50 per
paycheck, $43.00 will be deducted from your March 15 through your June 1
paycheck. As a result, all your summer health premiums will be paid by your
paycheck of May 31, 2013. When you return in the Fall, there will be a
reconciliation adjustment on your September 16 paycheck to account for any
open enrollment selection changes that take effect July 1.

Supplemental Retirement Plans: Summer research and teaching pay is eligible
for contributions to your supplemental retirement accounts including 403(b)
accounts and the 457 Virginia Deferred Compensation account. If you do not
want to contribute to your supplemental retirement accounts this summer,
please complete a Salary Reduction Agreement
<http://hr.gmu.edu/forms/benefits/gmu403bSalaryReductionAgreement.pdf> . If
you do not complete a new Salary Reduction Agreement
<http://hr.gmu.edu/forms/benefits/gmu403bSalaryReductionAgreement.pdf> , we
will deduct contributions from your summer pay to your 403(b) and 457(b)
plans. Please Note: If you have no summer pay, contributions cannot be made
to your 403(b) and 457(b) plans.

Optional Plans: These include UNUM Long-term Disability, Long-term Care, and
other supplemental coverage. One additional deduction (two times the normal
amount) will be taken from your March 15 through May 31 paycheck to cover
June, July, and August premiums.

Please contact the HR & Payroll department at (703) 993 2600 and ask to
speak to a Benefits Administrator with any questions you may have.
