FY17 Active Benefits Start August 1, 2016

MEA would like to remind all employees that your health, dental and vision plans are prepaid and are effective from August 1 to July 31 each year. Any changes made during this year’s open enrollment do not take effect until August 1, 2016.

The City will begin deducting for the new plan year in the pay period ending July 15, 2016 which is the July 29, 2016 payday. Your July 15th check will have no deductions due to 27 pay periods this year. For more information about no flex deductions or credits to your July 15th paycheck, please refer to the recent e-blast, Your July 15 City Paycheck Will Be Different Because of the Calendar.

Your current FY16 benefits will end July 31, 2016, and all services provided in the month of July will fall under your FY16 benefit plans. You cannot access FY17 benefits until August 1, 2016.

The City’s child care and dental/medical/vision reimbursement accounts run on the July 1st to June 30th cycle. Reimbursements are applied in the cycle for which dates of services are rendered. For more information regarding the reimbursement accounts, please contact Risk Management at (619) 236-5924 or by email at benefits_admin@sandiego.gov.

If you have any questions regarding any MEA-sponsored plans, please email benefits@sdmea.org.
