Social Security Payroll Tax Changes

For those CSU staff concerned about the social security rate change in your December, 2011 paycheck, the state has put out a document which may help explain things:

Social Security Paycheck Change

Also, the cost of several health care providers has increased in price. Some providers, like Kaiser, have almost doubled their monthly rates, starting this month. Also, check your co-pay amounts, as these may also have changed. Your campus employee benefits office can give you specific information regarding your health and benefits plan.

The rates these plans charge for coverage is established by negotiations between CalPERS and the various state health service providers, not by CSUEU.

For information on CalPERS, including checking your retirement and benefit information on-line, visit their website located at WWW.CalPERS.CA.GOV.
