In a Nov. 8 message to staff and faculty to the four NU campuses, David Lechner, NU senior vice president for business and finance, announced a successful year with lower-than-projected health claims.
To take advantage, university employees enrolled in either or both of the university’s medical and dental plans will receive a “premium holiday” for December.
“The medical and/or dental premiums that normally would be deducted will automatically be retained in your December paycheck,” Lechner wrote to staff in an email.
Total savings for December will depend on in which plan employees are enrolled, he said. Gross savings will range from $146 before taxes for a Basic Option Employee Only plan to $307 before taxes for a Basic Option Family plan.
“We’re very pleased to be able to provide this one-time benefit to our employees -- our greatest asset,” Lechner said. Those on vision care insurance will continue to pay premiums in December. UNL employees with questions about the “premium holiday” can contact the Campus Benefits Office at (402) 472-2600.
