With open enrollment complete, employees are encouraged to verify that their elections are accurate by reviewing their first January statement of earnings.
The first pay date in 2018 for bi-weekly staff is Jan. 10, 2018. Because the pay period for the Jan. 10 check is entirely in 2017 (Dec. 17-30), there are some things to be aware of regarding benefit deductions on that check:
- Benefits payroll deductions will reflect the updated 2018 rates starting on the Jan. 10 check unless you made certain changes to your medical, dental or vision election for 2018.
- If you changed plans (e.g. EPO to EHDHP) or enrolled in a benefit for the first time (including FSA and HSA), you will not have deductions taken for those benefits on the Jan. 10 check. You will have a double deduction taken on the Jan. 24 check, so please plan accordingly.
- No payroll deductions for FSA Limited or HSA will be taken on the Jan. 10th check because those benefits are new in 2018.
