benefits program is similar to a "cafeteria" plan. The
District pays the employee-only health insurance premium for those
who qualify. The District also awards each eligible employee a
negotiated dollar amount to use for other benefits such as:
dependent health insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, life
insurance, accident insurance, and/or income protection insurance.
If the total cost of the employee's benefit choices is more than the
available benefit dollar amount, the remaining amount will be
deducted from the employee's paycheck. If the employee does not use
all of the benefit dollars for insurance premiums, the employee must
choose one (or more) of the available investment options in which to
deposit the remaining dollars.
The District pays employee
post-retirement medical for those who qualify. Employees hired after
May 1, 1994, must meet a 15 year service requirement.
All employees are permitted to
voluntarily contribute pre-taxed dollars from their paychecks to
403(b) plan(s). Contact the Benefits Office at (714) 808-4815 for a listing of
