Open Enrollment for your 2017 healthcare benefits ended Friday, November 4, 2016. Your elections are now final, with one exception. After Open Enrollment, you can change your healthcare benefit elections only if you experience a qualifying event. This will trigger a special 45-day enrollment window for you to change your elections.
If you have a qualifying event, in addition to an application for benefit enrollment, you will also need to provide proof of the event. Below is a chart of common qualifying events and the proof required.
These examples represent the most common qualifying events. If you have a qualifying life event after Open Enrollment and want to make changes in your healthcare elections, you must submit your application for benefit enrollment, noting your changes and required proof to Health & Benefits. All documents must be submitted within 45 days of the event.
2017 Retirement Savings Account Annual Contribution Limits 457 and Roth/Traditional IRA
The annual contribution limits for the 457 Deferred Compensation Plan and the Roth and Traditional IRA remain unchanged from those in 2016.
The annual contribution limit for the 457 Deferred Compensation Plan remains $18,000 ($24,000 if age 50 or over; or $36,000 if qualified for the pre-retirement catch-up). Your contributions are made on a pre-tax basis which reduces your taxable income at the end of the year.
Contributions to the Roth IRA or the Traditional IRA are made on an after-tax basis. The annual contribution limit remains $5,500 ($6,500 if age 50 or over).
As we usher in a new year, take time to review your retirement savings accounts to determine if you are on track for a comfortable retirement. You can make changes to your contributions at any time during the year. If you have questions concerning your accounts, contact ICMA-RC at 1-800-669-7400.
If you have any questions, please contact a representative of the Health & Benefits office at 301-454-1694.
