Welcome to Your Benefits
The Town of Davie offers a comprehensive benefit package for all eligible employees. A variety of these employee benefit
programs have been highlighted in this booklet as a general reference. Please refer to the Town of Davie’s Employee
Handbook and Operating Procedures and group insurance Certificates of Coverage for detailed descriptions of all available
employee benefit programs and stipulations therein. Questions and further clarifications regarding this booklet’s contents
may be directed to the Human Resources Department.
What’s New
The Health Insurance Marketplace - In complying with Federal law, the Town of Davie’s Human Resources Department has
distributed required notification to all Town employees regarding the Health Insurance Marketplace. This notification explained
that Americans are required to obtain health insurance coverage. Town employees and their dependents who are enrolled in
the Town’s United Healthcare coverage will not be affected by these new laws, but any dependents or spouses not covered
must have their own coverage. If you need additional information, please contact the Human Resources Department.
Online Benefit Enrollment with BenTek!
The Town of Davie puts you in charge of your benefit enrollment. All benefit eligible employees are provided access to
electronic enrollment through the BenTek Employee Benefit Center (EBC). The EBC provides you the ability to make
your group benefit elections online for the annual open enrollment, new hire enrollment and to make any changes to your
coverage election due to a qualifying life event.

UNUM Disability Insurance
There are some plan design changes on the 2017 UNUM Short and Long Term Disability plans. See page 6 for details.
Humana Vision Plan
The new Humana Vision 130 Plan replaces last year’s plan and has some new benefits. See the chart on page 8.
$500 Carryover on the Medical FSA “Use It or Lose It” Rules - For 2017, the IRS has established the maximum amount
that can be contributed to a qualified FSA at $2,550. But, you can roll over up to $500 of unused FSA funds to the following
year! Your rollover will not impact your contribution limit, which means your total balance in the next plan year could be up
to $3,050. So, if you have any 2016 money you have not spent by the end of the 2016 plan year (12/31/2016) up to $500
maximum, it will carry over into your 2017 Medical FSA Account. This carryover is NOT for the Dependent Day care FSA –
ONLY the Medical FSA.
Remember – since 2011, Medical FSA funds cannot be used for over-the-counter medicines unless specifically prescribed
by a doctor. You must sign up each year for a Medical or Dependent Day care FSA. WageWorks is the company that
handles our FSA accounts and reimbursements, and there are WageWorks forms for signing up for an FSA and for
sending in claims. Claims may also be initiated online with WageWorks at or emailed to
[email protected] An FSA participant can establish a secure online account at
where they will be able to track their claims submissions, print claim forms, make address changes, etc. Employees can
get the forms and sign up with Human Resources or with your Aflac representative.

exclusions of the master contract.

to meet and no waiting periods. The plan provides covered services at a fixed co-pay applicable at either a participating
general dentist or participating specialist.

Qualifying Events and IRS Code Section 125
Premiums for medical, dental, vision and certain supplemental insurance policies and contributions to FSA accounts (Health
Care and Dependent Care FSA’s) and HSA accounts are deducted through a Cafeteria Plan established under Section 125
of the Internal Revenue Code and are pre-tax to the extent permitted. Under Section 125, changes to your pre-tax benefits
can be made ONLY during the Open Enrollment period unless you or your qualified dependents experience a qualifying
event, and the request to make a change is made within 30 days of the qualifying event.
Under certain circumstances, you may be allowed to make changes to your benefits elections during the plan year, if the
event affects your own, your spouse’s, or your dependent’s coverage eligibility. An “eligible” qualifying event is determined
by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Code, Section 125.
Examples of qualifying events include the following:
vGain or loss of eligibility for Medicaid or CHIP coverage (60 day notification period) vAn increase or decrease in your work hours causes eligibility or ineligibility vA covered dependent no longer meets eligibility criteria for coverage
vYou, your spouse, or dependent(s) terminate or start employment
vYou have a child, gain legal custody or adopt a child
vA child gains or loses coverage with an ex-spouse vYour spouse and/or other dependent(s) die(s)
vGain or loss of Medicare coverage
vYou get married or divorced
IMPORTANT – If you experience a qualifying event, you must contact Human Resources within 30 days of the qualifying
event to make the appropriate changes to your coverage. Beyond 30 days, requests will be denied, and the employee may
be responsible both legally and financially for any claim and/or expense incurred as a result of the employee or a dependent
who continues to be enrolled but no longer meets eligibility requirements. If approved, changes will take place on the first
of the month following the qualifying event, except for newborns, which are effective on the date of birth. Any cancellations
will be processed at the end of the month, except coverage terminates on the date following a death. You may be required
to furnish valid documentation supporting a change in status or “Qualifying Event.”

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA’s)
Flexible Spending Accounts allow you to use pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible out-of-pocket medical expenses for yourself
and your dependents, and/or dependent care expenses. Our FSA’s are administered by WageWorks, and all applications,
forms, brochures and information are available through the Aflac Reps or Human Resources.
The Healthcare Flexible Spending Account “Use It or Lose It” Rule has Changed –
Now Features a $500 Carryover
Recently the U.S. Department of the Treasury modified the “Use It or Lose It” rule which required any leftover balance in
a Healthcare FSA to be forfeited at the end of the plan year. Under the new rule, you will be able to carryover up to $500
of your unused WageWorks Healthcare FSA balance remaining at the end of a plan year, so you no longer end up losing
unused funds up to $500. This rule change limits your risk of losing any unused funds (up to $500.00) and gives you more
control and flexibility in managing your out-of-pocket healthcare expenses.
For 2017: Please review your current balance and your planned expenses for the remainder of this year. Note that up to
$500 of any remaining balance from 2016 will be carried over into your 2017 account. It will not affect your election limit for
2017 – you can carry a total balance of the full election amount for 2017 ($2,550), plus any carryover from 2016 (up to $500)
for a total balance of up to $3,050.
Health Care Spending Account (Medical FSA)
Uncovered, unreimbursed healthcare expenses (out-of-pocket) for purposes of a Medical FSA are defined by the IRS, and
can include medical, dental, vision deductibles, co-pays and coinsurance, eyeglasses and contact lenses, prescription drug
co-pays, and more. By using your Medical Healthcare FSA, you can pay for eligible medical expenses with pre-tax dollars
and reduce your taxable income. The maximum you can contribute to your Medical FSA is $2,550 per the IRS. Expenses
must be incurred within the Plan Year (1/1/2017 – 12/31/2017) except for the new $500 carryover amount.
Dependent Care Spending Account
With a Dependent Care FSA, you can set aside dollars on a pre-tax basis to pay for dependent day care expenses. You
can contribute a maximum of $5,000 per plan year (1/1/2017 – 12/31/2017), pay the expenses, and submit a reimbursement
form after paying for the day care. You cannot participate in this account and take a dependent care tax credit on your taxes
at year-end (it is one or the other). These expenses must be for the care of a child age 12 and under, or for a dependent
who is not capable of self-care. You will be reimbursed from your Dependent Care Spending Account only up to the amount
you have contributed at any given time. Reimbursement requests must be submitted and received by WageWorks within
30 days after the end of the plan year. There is no carryover on the Dependent Care Account.
Medical Healthcare and Dependent Care Spending Accounts are separate, and you cannot transfer money from one
account to the other. You may not use money in your Healthcare Spending Account for reimbursement of a domestic
partner’s medical, dental or vision expenses (per the IRS).
Some questions on FSA Accounts should be directed to a tax advisor.

As a Town Employee, you can participate in a 457 Deferred Compensation Plan, under which you can make pre-tax
contributions through payroll deduction into a variety of investment options to save for retirement. By setting aside a portion
of your income to accumulate on a tax-deferred basis, you pay fewer tax dollars now, and your savings and investment
earnings accumulate tax-deferred until you start drawing from the plan at retirement.
Your 457 Plan is a non-qualified tax-deferred compensation plan that works very much like other retirement plans such
as a 401(k) and 403(b). Your payroll-deducted contributions are deferred into the 457 Plan on a pretax basis, lowering
your taxable income. The 457 assets grow tax-deferred until they are withdrawn from the account, at which time you pay
the taxes. You may use this plan to save for retirement through systematic deposits each pay period, while also reducing
taxable income, your contributions and earnings grow tax-free, and you only pay taxes when you withdraw the funds.
Contributions may also be made to a Roth 457 Plan after-tax. When you take your money out at retirement, your contributions
and earnings do not get taxed.
You can get more information on these plans through Human Resources, or calling the
plan representative Erik Sherman, at 305-579-4026.

Long Term Care Insurance

assisted care facility (including Alzheimer’s facilities), adult day care, or in your own home. Learn about protecting your
assets with a state qualified long-term care partnership policy. Help protect your family and your financial plan with a

TreasuryDirect Payroll Savings Plan for Purchasing Savings Bonds
TreasuryDirect offers a Payroll Savings Plan feature that allows employees
to make recurring purchases of electronic savings bonds by having money
from each paycheck sent automatically to a TreasuryDirect account, just like
sending your pay to a bank by direct deposit. Once your Payroll Savings Plan
is set up in TreasuryDirect, the system will automatically purchase the type and dollar value of bond you want every time
you have accumulated enough money in your Account to make the purchase. For example: If you want to buy $50 Series I
Savings Bonds, and you ask your employer to withhold $25 from each pay, TreasuryDirect will purchase a $50 bond for you
every other payday. You don’t have to think about it again or do anything else. The purchase is automatic until you change
it or end the payroll funding. More information is available on the website or at Human Resources.
