Review 2022 Benefit Updates

These changes are reviewed in greater detail in the Benefits Enrollment Presentation. 

EAP Provider: Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provider is changing from LifeWorks to ComPsych (partner of Voya’s) to bring easier access for participants, a larger network of resources, as well as the same EAP benefits participants receive now: five face-to-face or virtual sessions per issue and unlimited phone access and website access for members and their immediate family.  This benefit is at no cost to members.  Watch for log in and phone number information closer to the end of the year.

    • Provider Network: ComPsych has a network of providers that is almost double our current network.  For those currently utilizing a LifeWork’s provider, ComPsych will honor the provider as being in- network and will allow visits to continue (up to the 5 maximum).
    • Legal Resources: Heads up! Participants who used any of LifeWork’s legal resources, such as their will prep tool, will want to be sure to save a copy prior to year end.  ComPsych will offer similar tools and resources, but access to any in-progress documents at LifeWorks will not carryover as part of the transition.
    • Website Access: The ComPsych website will not require individualized log ins, which means easier and quicker access to resources.

Long Term Disability (LTD): The LTD maximum monthly benefit is increasing from $5,000 to $7,500.  All regular full- and part-time members are eligible for LTD benefits that equals 60% of monthly gross earnings, up to the maximum. View more:  Leaves/Disability – FOTH

Life Insurance Coverage Limits: The buy up limits for spousal and child dependent supplemental life insurance are changing for the better.  During enrollment, you can purchase spousal supplemental life insurance in increments of $10,000, up to $50,000, and child dependent supplemental life insurance in increments of $5,000, up to $25,000. An Evidence of Insurability (EOI) is not required for coverage changes, unless electing coverage when you previously opted out.

Moving to one HSA Bank Provider: Starting in 2022, we are moving to one HSA bank provider – Associated Bank.  This change only impacts members who currently use Optum Bank as their HSA bank, which is only 6% of HSA participants. An email was sent to impacted members in mid-October with information.

PTO Update:  Good news!  The PTO accrual schedule is increasing for full-time members with 1-3 years of experience.  Currently, members in this group accrue PTO at an annualized rate of 104 hours/year.  Starting in 2022, these members will accrue PTO at an annualized rate of 120 hours/year.  The new schedule is as follows:

Calendar Years         PTO Hours/Year       Hours Accrued/Week
1-6 years                    120                               2.30
7-13 years                  144                               2.77
14+ years                   184                               3.54

Volunteer Time Off: New benefit! Starting in 2022, full– and part-time members are eligible to receive up to 8 hours per year to volunteer!  The purpose of this benefit is to allow members to utilize a portion of their normal work week to support the community in which they live or work.  Watch for details about this new benefit later this year.

Holiday Pay for Part-Time Non-Exempt Members: Beginning in 2022, part-time non-exempt members will receive an 8 hour timesheet assignment for a Foth-observed holiday. (Previously, part-time non-exempt members received a pro-rated amount.)

Review Reminders

Required Annually: Medical Plan Participants – Update “Other Medical Insurance”
All participants are required to provide UMR with an update of any other medical insurance information every 12 months to avoid claim denials.  Simply log in to your account at www.umr.com and click on the Other Medical Insurance link to update your information, or call the automated phone number at 866-586-0613.

Optional: Review your 401(k) deferral and 401(k) beneficiaries
Participants can review their information at any point during the year by logging into their Associated Bank Retirement account. To view deferral elections, go to Manage > Your Contributions. Deferral changes made by market close the Friday prior to payroll will be reflected on the following paycheck.  Please be sure to maintain at least an 8% deferral percentage per paycheck to receive the 4% maximum Foth match. To view beneficiaries, go to Settings > Beneficiary.  Deferrals and beneficiary information will rollover  automatically if no changes are made during enrollment.

Optional: Foth Owners – Update HSA Contribution
Foth Owner HSA direct deposit amounts will remain the same heading into the new year if no changes are made.  To make changes any point during the year, access Dayforce Self-Service > Forms > Direct Deposit.  Changes will take place on the following paycheck. For those owners wanting the change to be effective on the first paycheck in 2022, be sure to make the update between 12/21/21 and 12/29/21. Review HSA limits.
