Prorated Table for Part-time Employees
The amount an employee will contribute towards benefits is determined by the percentage of time you are working. To calculate the percentage you are working, divide the number of hours you work each day by 8. Or, divide the number of hours you work each week by 40.

PAUSD has set up our commuter benefit plan to be available to all employees working 20 hours or more per week (50% FTE).
We are working with Navia Benefits Solutions to set up pre-tax payroll deductions for work related transportation costs. The program allows employees to pay for their transit or vanpooling expenses with pre-tax dollars through a Section 132 Commuter Benefit plan. This plan is much like our Section 125 Flexible Spending Account plan, with two important differences. In the Section 132 plan, the employee can self-determine how much money to set aside for their commuting costs each month and any unused money in the account can roll over from month to month and from year to year.
This is important. If you decide to set up a Commuter Benefit account through Navia Benefit Solutions, the 10th day of each month is the deadline for determining the amount you wish to move to the Section 132 plan. If you miss the deadline, we will not have time to process your payroll deduction with the Santa Clara County Office of Education before the payroll closes for that month.
If you use public transportation, this is a program that will save you money. Give it a try. The website is open and ready to enroll you. Remember, enroll and specify a dollar amount by the 10th of the month in order to have the funds available to purchase bus and rail passes on the 1st of the following month.

If you are a full-time, benefits-eligible employee, you may opt out of the District's medical and/or dental insurance plans, provided the employee can provide proof of comparable medical/dental coverage through a non-District spouse or legal partner. As an incentive to take advantage of the opportunity to opt out of the District's plans, eligible employees may receive $2,500 for a full year of medical non-coverage and/or $300 for a full year of dental non-coverage (partial year non-enrollment will be prorated). You must make this selection through BenefitBridge. Current Opt-Out Stipends are NOTautomatically renewed, proof of comparable coverage for yourself, and your non-District spouse, and dependents is required annually (IRS Requirement). The election of the Cash-in-Lieu option through BenefitBridge and submission of proof of coverage must be received by the Benefits Office no later than November 5th, 2021.
