Life Insurance

Basic Life Insurance

Through Sun Life Financial Services, St. Rose offers all full-time employees basic life insurance, equal to one year’s earnings, to their designated beneficiary. The minimum benefit is $15,000 and the maximum is $500,000.

Voluntary Life Insurance

Sun Life Financial Services also offers Voluntary Life Insurance and Dependent Life Insurance. You may purchase:

  • Voluntary coverage up to $500,000 ($240,000 guaranteed issue at time of hire or when newly benefited)
  • Dependent insurance for your spouse up to $100,000 ($30,000 guaranteed issue)
  • Dependent coverage for your children up to age 21 for $2,000 or $10,000 (amounts over guaranteed issue require approval from ING Financial).

Flexible Spending Accounts

St. Rose offers employees two optional pre-tax flexible accounts: the Health Care Spending Account, and the Dependent Care Spending Account. Each year, you decide if you want to enroll in neither, either, or both of these plans, and how much you want to contribute. Your contributions will be automatically deducted from your paycheck in equal installments.

Health Care Spending Account

Although the St. Rose medical and dental plans will cover the majority of your expenses, you may need to pay for some things not covered by the plan, such as deductibles and co-pays for office visits and prescriptions. A Health Care Spending Account lets you set aside up to $2500 in pre-tax dollars from your paycheck each year to help cover these out-of-pocket expenses.

Dependent Care Spending Account

This account lets you pay for certain dependent care expenses using up to $5000 in pre-tax dollars per year. To receive benefits, you must first pay for the care of a qualified dependent, defined as 1) you claim them on your federal tax return, and 2) the dependent is either under age 13, or physically or mentally unable to care for themselves; this includes care for a disabled spouse or elder care for parents living with you.

You can open a Dependent Care Spending Account if you have a qualified dependent and:

  • You’re single and work, or
  • You’re married and you and your spouse work outside of the home, and/or your spouse is a full-time student for at least 5 months of the calendar year, or
  • Your spouse is physically or mentally disabled and unable to care for your eligible dependent.

For both the Health Care Spending Account and the Dependent Care Spending Account, claims for expenses must be submitted within 90 days at the end of the plan year (December 31), or any amount left in your account will be forfeited.

403(b) TSA Retirement Savings Plan

St. Rose offers all employees a 403(b)/TSA retirement savings plan. Similar to a company 401(k) plan, this voluntary program lets you save toward your retirement by investing pre-tax dollars in tax-deferred investments. You make these contributions through payroll deductions, before federal and state taxes are calculated.

The St. Rose 403(b)/TSA retirement savings plan is administered by Transamerica. Representatives from the company are available to answer your questions at any time.
