January Paychecks

Your paycheck is probably going to be less in 2017. Insurance premium increases are expected to increase the deduction for your health benefits. This premium adjustment is annual–it happens every January for those districts in the school employees health benefits program (SEHBP) as we are.  Paying for health benefits is a result of the New Jersey law passed in 2011 known as Chapter 78.  The payment is different for every member, depending on your salary and the type of benefits you receive.
