New KSBA "benefit options" service gets first district client
Graves County is the first district to enroll in the KSBA Educator’s Benefit Options program.
Educator’s Benefit Options provides a simplified process for employees of participating school districts to access a wide variety of personal insurance carriers and coverage plans, while working with a single benefits counselor. Among the participating carriers are Aflac, Anthem, Humana, Delta Dental, Lincoln Financial, AVESIS, Great American, Principal Financial and Assurant. Coverages include dental, life, disability, annuities and supplemental insurance.
The Educator’s Benefit Options service also includes a Section 125 Cafeteria Plan that enables employees to choose from benefits that provide tax savings both to the employee and the school district.
KSBA and its partner, Peel & Holland of Benton, Mayfield, Murray and Paducah, are accepting district sign-ups for the next 60 days to determine the program’s participants for this fall’s enrollments.
This is an opportunity to take advantage of the streamlined integration with MUNIS to save time and reduce errors while offering the best rates and plans for school employees.
Compliance services are available such as Cafeteria Plan Administration, 403B Administration and COBRA Administration.
