Everyone needs the security of knowing they can get help when they need it. That's what benefits were designed for. ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools provides a comprehensive benefits package, which includes medical coverage, dental care, life insurance, long-term disability, flexible spending, retirement/pension, and our employee assistance program.
For most people, medical benefits are no longer a “want” – they are a need. We’ve all seen the cost of medical care skyrocket over the years. We need insurance to help protect not only our physical health, but our financial health as well.
We offer you a choice of three medical plans, which provide benefits for medical services received through both network providers and non-network providers.

To paraphrase a television ad, “Life insurance isn’t for you. It’s for the ones you leave behind.” Life insurance is an important part of your financial security, especially if others depend on you for support. Even if you’re single, your beneficiary can use your life insurance to pay off your debts and other final expenses.

The Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) offered by the District provides you with a way to save money on your costs for health care expenses. All HRA/VEBA plans must meet IRS notices and rulings.
You are automatically enrolled in the HRA/VEBA plan if you are enrolled in the group $1000 Deductible Plan. District dollars are contributed to the VEBA Trust through the semi-monthly payroll process. The amount contributed is specific to each employee’s terms and conditions of employment. For annual contribution amounts, visit employee contracts.
If you participate in the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) for health care, expenses submitted are first processed under FSA. Once your FSA is exhausted (if enrolled), you are reimbursed up to the dollar amount of the claim or to the maximum amount of money on deposit. If your claim exceeds the amount that your employer has contributed to date, Corporate Health Systems will automatically continue to reimburse you as deposits are received until the claim has been paid in full.
Reimbursements are directly deposited or checks are mailed every Wednesday for claims submitted before 4:30 pm the previous Wednesday. If the reimbursement distribution date conflicts with a holiday, your reimbursement will be mailed the next working day
The success of any journey depends on preparation: a plan that's focused and mapped out in advance with provisions and navigational tools to keep you on pace.
If you were to retire tomorrow, what would you want to do? How and where would you like to live? How much income would you need to maintain your standard of living?
The amount of retirement income you need, of course, is a personal thing. There is no "magic" amount that is right for everyone.
We all try to plan for the future and look forward to a time when we can retire with a comfortable retirement income. However, determining what you need to accomplish that goal is often a difficult and frustrating exercise.
