Longevity Benefit

Eligible employees who work for Emery School District for over 15 years (with the last 10 years being consecutive) become eligible for longevity benefits. Qualifying employees receive an annual benefit, typically paid in June, for each year of service subsequently completed. The benefit is paid through the District's Prime-Choice plan and goes into either an interest-bearing medical savings account or the employee's 401(k) account through Utah Retirement Systems.

Pelion Benefits is the administrator of medical savings accounts for the program. Once employees retire, qualifying medical expenses can be reimbursed by sending a reimbursement request and accompanying documentation to Pelion. The process is very similar to requesting reimbursement from a flexible spending account. The money in the Pelion account stays with the employee until used (there is no "use it or lose it" clause).

The annual benefit amount is equal to a base of $1,000 plus an add-on amount of 0.30% of the employee's base salary. This amount is pro-rated for less than full-time employees.
