Pretax vs. Post-Tax
Employee contributions will be made as bi-weekly payroll deductions taken on a pretax basis unless the employee waives pretax deductions. Premiums for fellow coverage cannot be taken on a pretax basis.
Pretax deductions are subject to the limitations of Section 125 of the Federal Tax Code and the terms of the Research Foundation Flexible Benefits Program.
If your deductions are taken pretax, then you are not permitted to make any changes to your coverage unless you have a Qualifying Event. See the Change Your Coverage section for more information.
