Flex Benefits Overview

Most CCPS offered benefits allow employees to save on taxes as premiums are deducted in a pre-tax status; therefore, this reduces taxable income and taxes. Additionally, most insurance options to include spending account contributions are deducted prior to federal and state income taxes are withheld; as a result, this means the taxable income is lower. Further, CCPS provides several tax sheltered annuity options, these options allow employees to defer compensation on a pre-tax basis through payroll deductions, and those plans are the 403(b) plan and 457(b) plan.

New employees are required to enroll within the first 30-days of the date of hire. However, if the new employee does not enroll at this time, the next opportunity to select benefits options will be during annual enrollment, and this is typically during the Fall. Selections made during the annual enrollment are will have an effective date of January 1st of the following year.  The annual enrollment period is the time of the year in which all eligible employees can select and/or discontinue non-mandatory benefits.

In the event an employee chooses to waive/decline all offered employee benefits, the employee is required to formally decline coverage.

Employees may add coverage outside of the annual enrollment period providing the employee has a qualifying (life changing) event. i.e. a change in employment, marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of child; accordingly, official documentation is required as such. The employee must submit appropriate documentation within 30-days of the qualifying event in order to activate or cancel coverage.

The Human Resource Division is here to answer any questions and/or to provide resources that can assist with the concerns of our employees.
