Health Care Reform

January 2018

Notice the NEW Banner above? That's Captain Sully, Oracle Benefits Pet Ambassador for 2018! Oracle Benefits recently launched Pet Insurance through ASPCA Pet Health Insurance, and a photo contest was held as part of the introduction of this new benefit. Hundreds of Oracle employees submitted photos and through a random drawing, Captain Sully was the winning pet. For the next year, Captain Sully will be featured in Oracle US Benefits communications. Per his human, Marty Moister, Captain Sully, a Parson Russell Terrier, is four years old and weighs 21 pounds. He enjoys riding on Marty's boat (thus the moniker 'Captain' since he stands tall at the bow). Captain Sully enjoys chasing squirrels and playing with his favorite toy bear. While Captain Sully lives in Chicago, Marty tells us that he was actually born in Tennessee and therefore barks with a southern drawl. Congratulations to Captain Sully and Marty!

Most of the above-mentioned items are well known for how they contribute to a healthy heart. Did you know that the biological and chemical factors that trigger mental /emotional health issues could also influence heart disease? Click here to learn more from the American Health Association.

401(k) Plan – Did You Exceed the Contribution Limit?

In 2017, the maximum amount that you may defer to any and all 401(k) plans was limited to $18,000. If you were age 50+ as of December 31, 2017 the maximum allowable amount was $24,000.

The amount you contributed to the plan is reported on your W2 in Box 12 (code D - for traditional pre-tax and code AA for Roth 401(k)). Employer contributions such as the Oracle match are not subject to this limit, and are not conveyed on your W-2s.

If, having reviewed your W-2s from ALL employers in 2017, you feel you have exceeded your personal limit, please contact Don Reich (Oracle's 401(k) and Deferred Compensation Plan Manager) at or 719-757-4132. Be prepared to provide him copies of your W-2s from ALL employers in 2017 so that he may determine if an excess has occurred. The deadline for any refund of excess deferrals is April 17, 2018. Keep in mind that any refund will take approximately one week to process so please make your request as early as possible. Visit the Oracle US Benefits Website     for more information about the 401(k) Plan.
