ERA open enrollment ends Friday
The Employee Reimbursement Accounts program enrollment period ends at 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12.
The ERA program is a valuable employee benefit that allows you to contribute money on a pre-tax basis to pay for out-of-pocket medical expenses and/or dependent day care expenses. Money contributed to your reimbursement account is deducted from your paycheck before federal, state and FICA taxes are calculated resulting in fewer taxes paid.
Eligible employees may contribute up to $7,500 in a Medical Expense Reimbursement Account to pay for eligible health care expenses that are not covered by an insurance plan. Up to $5,000 may be contributed to a Dependent Care Reimbursement Account for eligible dependent day care expenses.
Contact Human Resources at 836-3871, if you have questions.

Wisconsin Retirement System presentation to be held Nov. 15
One of the benefits eligible university employees receive is pension coverage under the Wisconsin Retirement System. This pension fund is intended to provide employees with financial security after retirement. But will it be there? How is it being protected and invested today? These are important questions public employees should ask. The answers are as important to the employee who is just starting a career as it is to one who is approaching retirement.
Sandy Drew, the legislative and beneficiary liaison for the State of Wisconsin Investment Board, will present "Investing the Assets of the Wisconsin Retirement System — How Does it Affect Me?" Monday, Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the Ojibwa Room of Davies Center. Faculty and staff are invited to attend. For more information, contact Amy TeBeest, Human Resources, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 836-2513.
