If an employee has a qualifying event, he/she may opt out of pre-tax basic life and health insurance premium deductions.

To process these changes:

  1. The employee completes and signs the Pre-Tax Basic Life and Health Insurance Plan Election Not to Participate Form.
  2. The form is forwarded to the agency’s payroll department. The payroll person updates the payroll system to reflect the employee’s pre-tax change election.
  3. File the original form in the employee’s personnel file. You do not need to send the GIC anything.
