Section 125 Plans

Options Under Section 125 Plans

Littleton Public Schools offers several options for employees under its Section 125 Plan including paying for your benefits with pre-tax dollars, a Health Flexible Spending Account (Health FSA), Limited Purpose (Dental/Vision) FSA, Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (Dependent Care FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) for those who are enrolled in the Cigna Consumer Driven Health Plan with HSA or Kaiser High Deductible Health Plan with HSA. The district contributes to employees HSA (subject to Board of Education approval each year) based on the employee's enrollment level in HSA qualified plans. Employee contributions through payroll deduction to these plans are not subject to federal or state income taxes, Medicare taxes, and in most cases PERA contributions.

You must complete the enrollment form and required information in order to enroll in any of these plans. If you do not enroll in these plans upon hire, your next opportunity to enroll will be during open enrollment unless you have a change in family/employment status as defined by the IRS.

Pre-Tax Insurance Premiums

Deductions from your pay on a pre-tax and Pre-PERA basis allow you to pay your share of required insurance premiums. Once you enroll, these premium contributions will be deducted automatically on a pre-tax and pre-PERA basis until you elect to stop or complete a new enrollment form electing your portion to be deducted on an after-tax basis.

Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (Dependent Care FSA)

Employees may put up to $5,000 annually in a Dependent Care FSA through monthly payroll deductions to pay for dependent care expenses necessary because you (and your spouse) are working. This money can then be claimed by the employee for reimbursement by submitting receipts for day care expenses to 24HOURFLEX.

Health Flexible Spending Account (Health FSA)

Eligible employees can put up to $2,550 per plan year in their Health FSA through monthly payroll deductions.
