We look forward to welcoming you back for our 2023/2024 school year.  We are excited to announce that for this year’s benefit enrollment, we are rolling out a new program called “Employee Navigator” which will allow you to take control of your own benefits.  Here are two separate links with short, couple of minute videos that provide instruction on how to use the new system. 

 This first link will show you how to enroll in benefits - (Enrollment).  You can also refer to page 16 of your Employee Benefit Guide.  Beginning August 1st, you will receive an email with instructions to setup your new account or you can go to, then click on “Register a New User”, create your own Username and Password, click the “I agree with the terms of use” box, and then click next.  Once you are in the system, click on “Start Enrollment” in the green box.  Then you’ll step through and make your elections.

 Then once the new plan year begins on 9/1/2023, if you experience a “Qualifying Life Change” (see page 2 of your Employee Benefit Guide for list of life changes) you will be allowed to make changes to your benefits.  This video shows you how to use Employee Navigator to make those changes - (Life changes).

 As this is our first year on Navigator, all employees that are eligible for  benefits, will need to login and verify their information.  Please be sure to add your beneficiaries to your profile.  It is very  important that we have your correct beneficiaries on file.

We are excited for this program and know you will be too!

We appreciate the Murray City School District Board of Education recognizing the need to bring employee-paid insurance premiums more in line with school districts across the Wasatch Front.  The board prioritized funding this year to reduce these premiums as part of a multi-step plan.   The district will be educating employees this year on how to be good consumers of their insurance plan to help us help you further reduce the cost of insurance premiums in the future.

With the HealthSave plan, the district will continue contributing to the classified employee’s accounts and Administrator’s accounts.

You may choose to contribute your own money to your H.S.A. as well.  The maximum contribution amounts for 2023 are:  Single $3,850 and Family $7,750 (combined with money the district contributes on your behalf. Example:  If you are single and the district contributes $1,000, you may contribute $2,850.) Those over 55 may elect to save an additional $1,000 per year. This rate will increase in January 2024  to Single $4,150 and Family $8,300.

All benefits-eligible employees are offered a group life benefit of $50,000 for the employee and $2,000 for the employee’s dependents, up to age 26.  Additionally, the district provides an LTD benefit for the employee.

Dental coverage for FY23-24 will continue through EMI Health.  We were able to negotiate a 5% reduction to the premiums. The rates are listed on the insurance rate charts.

Note: Dental enrollment must be kept for the full contract year as it is a voluntary plan. Changes can only be made during Open Enrollment.

Newly-hired employees are urged to enroll in the Life Insurance and LTD plans. The life and LTD insurance is covered in full by the Murray School District for all employees that work 30+ hours per week.

EMI Benefits forms and information:

This benefit is free of charge to all benefit-eligible employees!

The Live Well Employee Assistance plan offers access to free counseling. This includes conflict at work or with family members, depression, anxiety, and life stressors. Help is also available for caregivers, crisis management, and marriage counseling. Contact them at 800-832-7733 to schedule a confidential appointment. We’ll also be offering a series of Mental Health workshops – more information to come.
