WPAHS - SUMMARY OF RETIREMENT PROGRAMS - 2015
HOW THE SYSTEM CONTRIBUTES TO YOUR RETIREMENT
RETIREMENT PLAN - CASH BALANCE
Enrollment in the Plan is automatic; there is nothing you need to do. To be eligible, you must:
 be at least 21 years old, and
 have completed one year of service where you were paid for 1,000 hours
The System contributes to your Cash Balance Retirement Plan account a percent of your annual pay after you work at
least 1,000 hours during the calendar year. The contribution will be based on either your age and/or years of service
(whichever gives you the better benefit) as shown in the chart below. After three (3) calendar years (January 1st –
December 31st) of service in which you earn 1,000 or more hours, you will be 100% vested.

403(b) RETIREMENT SAVINGS PLAN
All full-time, part-time and casual employees are eligible to participate in the Retirement Savings Plan as soon as you are
hired.
For calendar year 2015, the maximum amount you can contribute to the Savings Plan with Fidelity or TIAA-CREF is 80%
of pay or $18,000 per year, whichever is less. In addition, if you will be age 50 on 12/31/2015 you can contribute an
additional $6,000 for a total contribution of $24,000 to the Retirement Savings Plan in 2015. This plan provides
employees with the opportunity to select either Fidelity Investments or TIAA-CREF when choosing their investment
company.
The example below shows the annual contribution for an employee making $35,000 per year and contributing 4% of his
or her salary.

Enrollment in the 403(b) Retirement Savings Plan is easy!
Follow these simple steps:
1.
Log into PRISM and choose Employee Self-Service
2.
Select Benefits and then choose 403B Enrollment/Changes
Important things to consider:
1.
New enrollees, who do not select their own investment options, will automatically be defaulted to the
age appropriate Freedom (Fidelity Investments) or Lifecycle (TIAA-CREF) fund. You can change your
allocation(s) at any time by contacting your investment company.
2.
You can also choose your own investment options by completing an Enrollment Form found on PRISM
Employee Self-Service. Select ‘Benefits’, then ‘Retirement’, then ‘Retirement Savings Plan’ and chose
either Fidelity or TIAA-CREF. The Fidelity Enrollment Booklet contains the Enrollment Form. The TIAACREF Enrollment form is a separate link. Print and complete the Enrollment Form and mail the form
directly to either Fidelity or TIAA-CREF.
3.
If you contribute at the IRS maximum limit for any given year, you will need to divide the maximum by
the number of remaining pays (per calendar year) and enter the dollar amount in the contribution box.
4.
If you contribute at the maximum IRS limit for any given year as well as elect the catch-up contribution
(for those participants age 50 or older by 12/31/15), you will need to divide the total of both the IRS
maximum and catch up by the number of remaining pays (in the calendar year) and enter the dollar
amount in the contribution box.
5.
If you contributed to another plan with a previous employer and you wish to contribute at the IRS
maximum including the catch-up for any given year, you will need to calculate the per pay amount so
you do not exceed the IRS limit.
6.
You cannot divide your contributions between both investment companies. You can contribute to either
Fidelity Investments or TIAA-CREF.
7.
You will be able to change your 403(b) contribution every month in PRISM from the 1st through the 25th
of each month.
8.
Your new deduction amount will be effective the first check date of the following month.

Eligible employees – all regular full time and part time employees with an authorized FTE greater than or equal to 0.40
FTE (32 hours per pay period) accrue sick time hours.
Sick time is earned at the rate of 0.0308 hours for every hour paid, up to a maximum of 2.4619 hours per pay period
(64.0 hours or 8 days per year based on a 1.0 FTE). Sick time is not earned when an employee is absent without pay.
Employees may earn up to a maximum balance of 1200 sick hours.
PERSONAL
Eligible employees – all regular full time and part time employees with an authorized FTE greater than or equal to 0.40
FTE (32 hours per pay period).
The amount accrued each pay period is based upon actual hours paid, both productive and currently approved nonproductive hours such as vacation, holiday and sick time. The accrual is 0.0115 per hour of paid time to a maximum of
0.9231 hours per 80 hours (24.0 hours or 3 days based on 1.0 FTE).
The maximum personal time plan balance is 40 hours.
AHN - SUMMARY OF PAID TIME OFF PROGRAM – April 1, 2015
Beginning April 2015, AHN will implement a competitive Paid Time Off (PTO) program across the network. PTO programs
are common in health care settings due to the 24/7/365 requirements of providing care. The PTO program will combine
time off for such purposes as vacation, personal and sick time. Time off for legal and recognized holidays will be separate
from the PTO program.
Between now and March 2015, the current time off programs will continue. In early 2015, you will receive information
about how the new PTO program will work, including how you will accrue time, how you may use time, how time will
carryover, and how your opening PTO balance will be determined.
Your earned, unused sick time as of March 2015 will be ‘saved’ for your future use under specific situations. You will
have access to your ‘saved’ sick time in the event of personal illness or injury, similar to a disability occurrence. This is
consistent with the intent of such hospital programs that provided sick time and carry over. Use of your ‘saved’ sick time
balance as of March 31 will be coordinated with the employer-provided short term disability benefit beginning April 1.
A Note About ‘April 1’
Please note that April 1 is the approximate date the current time off programs will transition to the new network-wide
PTO program. Each entity may have a slightly different effective date due to different payroll period end dates, but all
time will be accounted for appropriately.
