I’m eligible for the employer healthcare contribution of $500/1,000. Do the employer HSA contributions (for this employer contribution and the healthy living incentive) count toward my annual HSA contribution maximum?
Yes. Any contributions (whether employee or employer) count toward your annual HSA contribution maximum. For 2018, the annual HSA contribution max for those electing single/employee only medical coverage is $3,450 ($6,900 if you’re adding family members to your medical plan).
The employer contribution is already factored into the OE tool. For example, I’m eligible for the employer contribution and I add myself/my kids to medical, FirstEnergy will deposit $1000 in my HSA in the 1st quarter. The enrollment tool knows I’m eligible for this and will take my max and reduce it by the $1000 (based on what I elect as my medical plan and tier). So the employer contribution is factored into what an employee can elect in the enrollment tool.
Not all union employees are eligible for the employer contribution. Refer to your collective bargaining agreement to determine eligibility.
Will there be an enrollment for critical illness and accident insurance this year?
Yes. FirstEnergy provides access to certain voluntary benefits through Mercer that provide you with additional coverage. FirstEnergy is not the plan sponsor of these offerings but discounts are negotiated on your behalf. You can enroll in critical illness and accident insurance only from Oct. 16 through 30 through Mercer at 866-795-0156 or http://www.firstenergyvoluntarybenefits.com/. You can enroll in other plans (identity theft protection, auto/home insurance and pet insurance) at any time.
I am enrolled in an HDHP/HSA and would like to contribute the maximum amount to my HSA in 2018. I believe I will also receive the healthy living incentive payout, which will default to my HSA. How do I contribute the maximum amount to my HSA but ensure I am not over the 2018 HSA limit?
If you earn the Healthy Living incentive and your incentive is deposited into your HSA and it exceeds the 2018 HSA maximum, SAP will adjust your employee HSA deductions at the beginning of 2018 to ensure you do not contribute above the HSA maximum amount.
If I am at least age 55 (or older) and want to contribute the $1000 HSA catch up contribution, how do I do that?
If you are electing to contribute HSA catch up contributions during open enrollment, you must enter the maximum HSA contribution in order to elect the catch up HSA contribution in the open enrollment tool.
I purchased additional time off through the PTO purchase program (for nonbargaining employees only). I will not be able to use all of this PTO. How do I get reimbursed?
If you purchased additional time off through the PTO Purchase Program and you will not be able to use it, you will have the opportunity to sell back those unused Purchased PTO hours. A communication will be sent at year end with instructions to employees with remaining Purchased PTO hours. Those employees will be required to submit a form to request their Purchased PTO to be refunded at year end. Employees will receive their refund in the last pay in December.
