Benefits Committee

March 15th, 2008 at 04:15 pm

Have I mentioned, I love the place I work for? They have decided to take a look at what the employees actually want/need as far as benefits go, for health insurance and other potential perks, and look into ways to changing things.

As a result they have formed a Benefits Committee made up of a representative from each department. That representative is responsible for collecting ideas from their department and relaying to the department what went on in the meeting.

The representative for my department is ME! Smile I asked for it and no one else wanted it so I got nominated. Smile I'm excited. There were things brought up at the meeting that I'd thought about but forgot at spur of the moment when asked on the spot for ideas.

Whether or not thing actually change, I appreciate the time/effort my company is making into having things that are not only beneficial to the employee but also wanted/used by the employee.

I really hope we change from FSA to HSA.

    From what I understand based on people who have HSA, HSA means the money is yours and never expires but can only be used for health/medical related expenses. But if you leave your job, or you don't use it all up in the plan year, it is still there for you to have/use/etc. FSA is not as flexible despite it's name. Whatever money you put in has to be used in the plan year and if you don't, it's gone, if you quit, it's gone. That's the best of my knowledge on the subject.

    Oh and Thanks Baselle! Now if I can just keep at it.....
