Under Federal regulations, after a plan year (January–December) has started, you will not be able to changeyour benefit elections unless you have experienced a qualifying life event. These events result in changes in your family, including:
Your election changes must be consistent with the status change brought about by the qualifying life event; please notify the Benefits Department within 31 days of the event to make any changes. Documentation may be required.
For more information on a qualifying event, please visit NebraskaBlue.com
To enroll, you will need to be logged on to WoodmenLife's system, either onsite or via VPN. Once you log in to the Lawson self-service website, click on "Bookmarks" in the upper left corner, then Employee Self-Service > Benefits > Benefits Enrollment to make your selections.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) allows you to use pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible benefit plans. WoodmenLife automatically processes medical, dental, vision, and life insurance premiums on a pre-tax basis. Premiums are deducted from your paycheck prior to the calculation and deduction of taxes, and therefore your taxable income is reduced.
This means more take-home pay!
