Employee Handbook

Retirement/Insurance Benefits

The following retirement and insurance benefits apply to full-time employees and part-time employees working 1000 hours or more per year. Benefits are prorated for part time employees based on hours worked. There will be no trade-off payments if employees decide to make other retirement/insurance arrangements.

Please be advised that benefits can be changed from time to time. In the event of any inconsistencies between this Handbook or any other description of benefits and formal plan documents, the formal plan documents will govern. Please refer to the UUA guidelines and plan documents for eligibility requirements.

Pension
For employees who have completed a full year of service for a UUA congregation or the UUA, First Parish will contribute 10% of their salary to the UUA pension plan.

Health Insurance
First Parish will pay 80% of the individual premium for the UUA PPO policy. First Parish will also pay 50% of the difference between the UUA PPO individual policy and the Employee + Child(ren) plan.

Example for full-time individual: Individual PPO premium is $5,000. 80% of $5,000 = $4,000. First Parish pays $4,000, employee pays $1,000.

Example adding children: Employee + Child(ren) premium is $9,000. 50% of differential ($4,000) = $2,000. First Parish pays $6,000, employee pays $3,000.

Prorated example for individual: A part-time employee works 26 hours/week for 40 weeks, a total of 1040 hours per year. Benefits are prorated at 50%, so First Parish pays 40% of the individual premium. 40% of $5,000 = $2,000. First Parish pays $2,000, employee pays $3,000.

Prorated example adding children: First Parish pays 25% of the differential for Employee + Child(ren) coverage. 25% of $4,000 = $1,000.
First Parish pays $3,000, employee pays $6,000.
