Taylor and Sons and NTA Life will be conducting the Annual Spring Open Enrollment virtually the week of March 22 - March 26, 2021. Please take a few minutes to look over the attached fliers and call one of their representatives if you would like to enroll, cancel, or learn more about the optional insurances offered. This includes such plans as Vision, Life, Accident, Heart, Cancer, and several others. This is not the time to enroll in health and/or dental insurance. Open enrollment is held in November/December for those plans.
You may also choose whether to continue, cancel, or initiate participation in the Cafeteria Plan during this open enrollment. Keep in mind,
premiums that are in the cafeteria plan are withheld pre-tax. You are not able to cancel policies for which premiums are not taxed until the next open enrollment for that plan is held. Be sure to make your preference to have premiums in the cafeteria plan or not to have them in the cafeteria plan known when enrolling in optional plans. Agents will typically assume you want premiums in the cafeteria plan.
Please check your pay stub in the Employee Portal. There you can see what plans you are currently enrolled in and if the premium is in the cafeteria plan. If the code beside your deduction ends in an "X", it is in the cafeteria plan and is not taxed. Note: Deductions titled NAT'L Teachers Assoc is for NTA Life; not a union or professional organization.
A call center has been set up specifically to assist Plaquemines Parish School Board employees. Please see the attachments for the applicable number to call to speak with a representative from Taylor and Sons and/or NTA Life next week, March 22 - March 26, 2021.
You must re-enroll for participation in Flexible Spending Accounts.
If you do not wish to make any changes other than re-enrolling for Flexible Spending accounts, you do not have to call in or do anything.
