IRS Form 1095-C

 Last week we mailed out the Form 1095-C for all Employees enrolled in the Benefits Fund in 2015. This form was an IRS requirement for all employers with more than 50 employees and is a direct result of the Affordable Health Care Act. The form is you and your dependents proof of health insurance for your 2015 tax return.

If you and your dependent had coverage all 12 months, the box "All 12 Months" will be checked.

Please review your form carefully. Should you need a corrected form please contact Rick Rhodes at the Benefits Fund via his email. Please give your name and the exact information that needs corrected. I new form will be mailed to the current address on file.
