New Health Insurance Acceptance
Effective for the July health insurance invoice, the acceptance
date is now the 24th of every month. The Department of Employee
Trust Funds (ETF) will further extend this date to the first working
day after the 24th when the 24th falls on a weekend or holiday.
ETF changed the date in response to employer requests that were
driven by the fact that insurance coverage now ends at the end of
the month in which an employee terminates. Previously, the coverage
ended two months after termination. This should allow employers
additional time to reconcile payroll records.
ETF is in the process of updating other remittance dates and will
notify employers when they are changed.
