    Q:  If I want to increase the number of deductions for tax purposes?
    A:  Contact  - Julie Nardi x1006. (The District cannot offer advice on how you complete these tax forms, so plan to speak with your personal tax consultant.)

    Q:  I have a question about the health insurance plans available to me?
    A:  Your labor unit’s contract references your base health insurance plan; however, other options are available and can also be accessed on the district’s website under “health insurance rates”.   Please contact Sandra LoweMarx x1007 for more detailed information.         

    QI want to add a family member to my health insurance?
    A:  You need to complete a health insurance change form.   Please contact - Sandra Lowe-Marx x1007 and state which plan you currently participate in, so she can forward the correct document to be completed.

    Q:  I am retiring and want to “close out” and submit a claim for unused sick/vacation day?
    A:  Once you’ve worked your last work day, Carly Jacobsen x1014 provides your final unused attendance balances to payroll to process any contractual payments due you.  This is normally done in the payroll following your final pay.
