Q:

Voluntary Separation Program: How will premiums for the employee portion be collected?



A:
  • If the VSP includes the incentive of Clemson University paying the employer portion of health and dental benefits for up to a year, eligible employees will have the following options:
    • Submit payment for the employee portion of the monthly premiums to the Office of Human Resources. Payments must be received by the 1st of the month.
    • Request for the employee portion of the premiums to be withheld from the voluntary separation payment incentive. 
      • If the employee is participating in the MoneyPlu$ Pretax Group Insurance Premium Feature, premiums for the remainder of the current calendar year will be deducted on a pre-tax basis, and premiums for the next calendar year will be deducted on a post-tax basis. 
      • If the employee is not participating in the MoneyPlu$ Pretax Group Insurance Premium Feature, premiums will be deducted on a post-tax basis.
  • If the employee is eligible for retiree insurance, the health, dental, dental plus and/or vision premiums (and if applicable the tobacco surcharge) will be deducted by the S.C. Retirement System from the employee’s retirement check. Optional Retirement participants will be billed directly by PEBA.
