Read Important Changes To Your Prescription Drug Coverage and Medicare Part D!
Oakton Community College has determined that the prescription drug coverage offered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield is, on average for all plan participants, expected to pay out as much as standard Medicare prescription drug coverage pays and is therefore considered Creditable Coverage. Because your existing coverage is Creditable Coverage, you can keep this coverage and not pay a higher premium (a penalty) if you later decide to join a Medicare drug plan.
Please read the complete 2013 Model Creditable Coverage Disclosure Notice to become more familiar with all the upcoming changes and options regarding your drug coverage.
Oakton has a bi-weekly payroll system. You will be paid every other Friday. As a part of the College’s green initiative direct deposit advices and W-2’s are no longer printed. Both are available electronically in Self Service Banner. Please see the Payroll FAQs section for detailed instructions on how to access Earnings History, Pay Stubs, W-2’s and Salary information.
If you have questions please contact the payroll staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Exciting news from Oakton's Payroll/Accounting Department - employees now have the capability to split their net pay between two bank accounts! See the forms link.
