Open Enrollment for 2016 Benefits
Our benefits open enrollment period this year for election of benefits for 2016 will begin Monday, November 23rd and will end on Friday, December 4th,
We have scheduled an open enrollment webinar on Tuesday, November 24 at 11:30 am (EST). You will receive a meeting invitation Monday, November 23 via email.
ZelTech Employee Benefit Programs continues to face the same significant challenges as all other organizations. Americans today are living longer and are requiring more medical care. The combination of our diverse population, annual medical inflation, and the ongoing implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will have an impact on our benefits program. Over the last several months, we have considered many alternatives that would minimize our cost increases.
We encourage you to thoroughly review the UHC information brochures posted on the Portal and Employee Navigator website.
Don't forget to mark your calendar for the open enrollment meeting. If you have questions, please contact the HR office.
Flexible Spending Arrangements (FSA) for 2016
Plan now to use Health Flexible Spending Arrangements in 2016
The IRS is reminding eligible employees that now is the time to begin planning to take full advantage of their employer’s health flexible spending arrangement (FSA) during 2016.
FSA’s provide employees a way to use tax-free dollars to pay medical expenses not covered by other health plans. Interested employees wishing to contribute for the 2016 plan year will need to decide how much to contribute through payroll deductions during our annual open enrollment that will begin on 11/23/2015.
The maximum contribution to the Health FSA is $2,250 and Dependent FSA is $5,000 for the 2016 plan year. Amounts contributed are not subject to federal income tax, Social Security tax or Medicare tax.
Throughout the year, employees can then use funds to pay qualified medical expenses not covered by their health plan, including co-pays, deductibles and a variety of medical products and services ranging from dental and vision care to eyeglasses and hearing aids.
Under the use or lose provision, participating employees often must incur eligible expenses by the end of the plan year, or forfeit any unspent amounts. But under a special IRS rule we have chosen a grace period option whereby an employee has until 2 ½ months after the end of the plan year to incur eligible expenses and get reimbursed.
Educational Resources for participants are located at:

Unum Voluntary Term Life and AD&D Insurance
Annual Re-enrollment for the UNUM Voluntary Term Life Benefit and Accidental Death and Dismemberment Plans will begin on 11/23/2015 and end on 12/31/2015.
Did you know that 68 million Americans have no life insurance, and those with coverage have far less than most experts recommend in order to ensure a secure financial future for their families?
Re-enrollment is an opportunity for you who already have coverage to evaluate what you currently have and make changes, as appropriate, to meet your personal needs.
During the re-enrollment process there are some important things to remember:
Currently enrolled employees: If no changes are requested – no actions are needed, all prior elections will remain in effect. If you have “aged” out of an age band you will see an increase in your coverage cost. Those affected by a rate change will be notified.
Newly hired employees: You will need to complete an enrollment form and Evidence of Insurability form for you and your dependents.
Should you decide to make changes to your existing coverage a new enrollment form must be completed to reflect the new coverage(s). It is important that the enrollment form also include any coverage that remains the same since this enrollment form will replace any prior forms.
Depending on the coverage amount that is selected, you may need to provide health and medical information to UNUM to be approved for coverage (Evidence of Insurability).
Please click here for the Plan description form, enrollment form, the Evidence of Insurability form (EOI), Beneficiary form, and coverage highlights.

Wells Fargo - We're enhancing the Plan Sponsor Website
One of the primary ways we engage with you is through the Wells Fargo Plan Sponsor Website - a tool you use to manage your plan, your participants, and your communications to and from Wells Fargo. Feedback we've received from you indicates that the number one concern in regard to the Plan Sponsor Website is the number of "clicks" required to get to key information and an interface that is difficult to use.
Based on this feedback, we are enhancing our Plan Sponsor Website by making it easier to access the information you need, and developing a more user-friendly, intuitive interface. By providing you with a more robust experience that requires less clicking and searching, you can focus more on your retirement plan and your participant interactions.
The first release of enhancements - occurring the weekend of November 7, 2015 - contains a re-designed homepage. The overall look and feel of the page has also been refreshed, and is reflective of the Wells Fargo brand.
The refreshed homepage sets the tone for future updates, and over time, new functionality, tools and services will be introduced to enhance your overall experience, help you measure results, and guide you as you make retirement plan decisions.
Eventually, key information and reporting will appear in a central location, making it easier to find exactly what you need.
Future updates* will include:
• Interactive plan reporting to allow you to look at your plan data in ways that are meaningful to you
• Customized reporting utilizing vivid colors and graphics
• Modeling capabilities to determine how plan design alternatives drive plan health
• Personalized, secure messaging between you and Wells Fargo
• Enhanced alerts and notifications
• Access to all your plans in one place
To provide you with the best possible experience, the Website evolution will occur over time to ensure all enhancements are thoroughly validated and tested.
