Under IRS Code Section 125, Chesterfield County Public Schools provides payroll deductions
for employees who voluntarily elect to participate in the Cafeteria or Flexible Benefits Plan. A
Cafeteria or Flexible Benefits Plan allows employees to choose from a menu of qualified
benefits with the cost of the selected benefit(s) paid on a pre-tax basis. The premiums paid by
employees for individual and/or family medical coverage, child or dependent care, and
supplemental insurance (e.g., cancer, disability, hospital indemnity, accident, certain life
insurance policies, etc.) may be paid with pre-tax salary dollars through payroll deduction.
Employees become eligible for this benefit immediately upon hire. The plan year is an
established 12-month period. No changes may be made during a plan year unless there has
been a change in the employee’s family status (e.g., marriage, divorce, death, birth, adoption
and termination of employment). Upon separation from employment, it is the responsibility of
employees to notify the appropriate insurance company.
