Section 125 Plan
As an Elgin ISD employee, you are eligible to participate in a Section 125 Plan. Enrollment opportunities are limited to the plan year dates for your employer.
A Section 125 Plan allows you, the employee, to select from a list of available benefits that will meet your family’s benefits needs. Certain benefit premiums are deducted from your gross earnings before federal with-holding taxes are calculated. The amount you elect to have deducted “pre-tax” actually lowers your taxable income. By implementing this plan, your employer is helping you reduce your taxes and increase your take home pay.
