Faculty Rights Tip of the Week: Flex Cash


Through the Flex Cash Plan (Article 32.13 in the Faculty Contract), faculty who waive CSU benefits because they have other non-CSU coverage can receive an additional $128 in compensation per month for waiving just medical benefits, $12 for waiving dental, and $140 for waiving both.

In order to participate, each employee must request participation and certify that s/he has alternate non-CSU insurance for the CSU insurance being waived.

Just a reminder — October 7, 2016 is the last date of the open enrollment period for health care benefits.  Contact your campus Human Resources for more information about open enrollment.
