I am extremely concerned, as a single-payer, that my fringe benefits will be taken away. Can CSEA please email the collective some more information on this?

I am extremely concerned, as a single-payer, that my fringe benefits will be taken away. Can CSEA please email the collective some more information on this? I purchased a house, and this was considered as earned-income by my lender when approving the home loan. When I went through the process, I did not know there may be changes around the corner. If fringe benefits are taken away, I will lose my home. This is very concerning to me. Thank you for fighting on our behalf.

ANSWER

Per the mutually agreed to criteria, our single payer members need to be kept whole. There is no risk of loosing the current cash back by switching to SISC. The Negotiations Team met with the District on 4/15/19 to discuss the effects of various options on single party payers. Note, currently 2 plans offered by CalPERS exceed the districts contribution when including the dental and vision costs. Cost projections over the next few years show this number increasing.
