Important Benefits Notices

Summary Annual Reports (SAR). Dental, Employee Assistance, Health and Pension programs are governed by a set of rules – the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) — that require employers to provide all participants with basic information concerning the plan’s financial condition. The content and format is established in the regulations issued by the Department of Labor. These documents are located on the HR Intranet site under Information and Forms and are for informational purposes only. No action is required on your part. Questions? Call Deborah at x3515.

FSA: 2011. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires that any money left in your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) be forfeited if it is not reimbursed for an eligible 2011 expense. FSA expenses for 2011 must be incurred by March 15, 2012 and be submitted for reimbursement no later than June 15, 2012. For a copy of the form to submit to United Healthcare, please go to Drew’s Intranet website, click on employees, scroll to benefits, flexible spending account and click on claim form.
