Spousal Surcharge

Starting in January 2017, SAWS employees will be required to pay a spousal surcharge — $100 per month ($50 per pay period) — to include a spouse on a SAWS medical plan if the spouse is currently employed and has group medical coverage available through their employer. The surcharge will also apply to spouses that are retired and have access to a health plan through his/her previous employer (other than through SAWS).
