LIFE INSURANCE
Company-paid life insurance will increase to $100,000.  This will result in "imputed income" because it is a tax-free benefit only up to $50,000.  It is subject to Social Security and Medicare taxes and will be reported annually on your IRS Form W-2.  For employees between the ages of 30-39 years, it is estimated that the increase to your taxable income will be $48-$54/year.   You can opt out of the increase by a signing a waiver form.

VISION SERVICE PLAN (VSP)
Frame allowance will increase to $175 & for contacts to $150
