Section 125 Plans
A Section 125 Flexible Fringe Benefits Plan is offered to employee groups identified as SCFT (Faculty), CSEA (Classified), Confidential, Management and Board. This Plan allows employees to direct a part of their pay, on a pre-tax basis, into District contracted accounts that can be used during the year for reimbursement of eligible out-of-pocket expenses. These expenses can include elective insurance premiums, a Dependent Care plan with both child and elder care, and a Medical Reimbursement plan which includes insurance deductibles and co-payments as well as many over-the-counter expenses.
A Section 125 Plan is offered to part-time faculty members (with a 40% + load) for medical and/or dental premiums only with payments forwarded on a pre-tax basis through payroll deductions to the District’s contracted provider.
