TCOE Section 125 Cafeteria Plan
What is a 125 Plan? What does that mean for me?
The IRS Code Section 125 allows employers to implement an employee benefit arrangement/plan under which active employees are allowed to withhold a portion of their salary on a pre-tax basis to cover the cost of qualifying insurance premiums, medical expenses and dependent day care expenses. Because Section 125 Cafeteria Plan benefits are free from federal and state income tax, an employee's taxable income is reduced which increases take-home pay. In many cases, employer savings can add up to as much as 20% of every dollar being passed through the plan, and employees can save up to 40% depending on their tax bracket.
Regular full-time, classified, management and academic employees are eligible for 125 plan benefits through payroll deduction on their first day of work. The plan is administered by American Family Life Assurance Company (AFLAC). Enrollment must be renewed each year during open enrollment in October/November. For additional information, please contact the Human Resource Benefit Analyst at 530-623-2861 x225.

The Plan permits all employees to be eligible for plan participation immediately upon employment, via payroll deduction to a 403(b)/457 plan chosen from the District's list of approved vendors (excluding students performing services for the District). The District's approved vendor list is available on the Envoy Plan Services TCOE website. For 2016 the maximum pre-tax contribution is $18,000. The over 50 "catch-up" (if qualified) is $6,000. The district also offers a 457(b) Deferred Compensation Plan by CalPERS and LSW with equal pre-tax maximum contributions as the 403(b).
