Health Insurance
Coverage is effective the first of the month following the date of hire.  Dependent children are eligible for coverage up to age 26.  

Because families have different medical needs, Denver Housing Authority offers a choice of three plans through Kaiser Permanente: 1) Deductible/Coinsurance DHMO, 2) HMO and 3) Added Choice Triple Option.  The plans are similar in benefits, but differ in premium cost, deductible, out-of-pocket expenses, and range of choice of physicians and hospitals.

Dental Plan   
Coverage is effective the first of the month following the date of hire.  Dependent children are eligible for coverage up to age 26.  Premium is paid 100% by employee and is payroll deducted. 

Two different plans are offered through Assurant Employee Benefits (acquired by Sun Life Financial: 1) a prepay discount plan offering comprehensive benefits through a network of plan dentists and 2) a more traditional dental insurance with a yearly benefit maximum of $1000 and a deductible per person per policy year of $50.

Vision Insurance
Vision insurance is offered through VSP Vision Care (via Assurant Employee Benefits, acquired by Sun Life Financial) and is an employee paid benefit.

Housing Authority Insurance Group (HAI Group)
The Housing Authority Insurance Group (HAI Group) offers a free $5,000.00 term life insurance policy to active eligible DHA employees only.  The coverage amount will be reduced for an active employee at age 65 to $3,250 and age 70 to $2,500.00.

Retirement Savings
Participation in the 457 Deferred Compensation Plan is optional.  It provides retirement savings through payroll deduction before taxes are deducted.  There are no eligibility requirements to participate in this plan.   IRS rules and regulations apply.

Participation in the ROTH IRA is optional.  It provides retirement savings through payroll deduction after taxes are deducted.  There are no eligibility requirements to participate in this plan.  IRS rules and regulations apply. 

125 Plan (a.k.a. Cafeteria Plan or Flexible Benefit Plan)
Coverage is effective the first of the month following the date of hire.  This plan allows you to set aside part of your salary to pay for health and dependent care expenses with pretax dollars and to pay for the employee’s portion of health and dental insurance premiums pre-tax (prepay dental insurance cannot be paid pretax).

Annual salary adjustment is given depending upon current policy.
