By now you will probably have seen the memo from HR about changes to the premiums for benefits. Due to increases in claims the premiums will rise moderately for the dental plan and to a larger degree for the health plan. The increase for the health plan is largely due to an increase in out-of-country claims. It is too early to tell if this is a trend which will continue or an anomaly which will reverse in coming years. We have asked for more details concerning these increased claims.
The rates for LTD and optional insurance remain unchanged from last year.
