The Commonwealth normally deducts the employee’s share of basic life and health insurance premiums on a pre-tax basis. During Annual Enrollment, or when you have a qualified status change as outlined on the pre-tax form, you have the opportunity to change the tax status of your premiums:
- If your deductions are now taken on a pre-tax basis, you may elect to have them taxed, effective July 1, 2018.
- If you previously chose not to take the pre-tax option, you may switch to a pre-tax basis, effective July 1, 2018.
