The McIntosh County School System has a Section 125 program for its employees. During the open enrollment period (October-November), enrollers will be in the school system to review the plan with employees. At this time, information about the insurance products under the plan (dental, life, cancer, etc.) and an explanation of benefits is available.
Employees' State Health Insurance comes under this pre-tax plan and it is not required that employees purchase additional insurance products.
The Section 125 program is completely voluntary, but IRS rules require that each employee elect whether or not to participate. All new employees must meet with an enroller during the open enrollment period to state their choice. For employees electing to participate in the Section 125 plan, deductions will begin at the end of the month.
