HCAOA continuously strives to enhance the benefits of your membership. We are announcing a new partnership with National Enrollment Services (NES) that we believe will be of substantial benefit to you and your staff. NES assists member agencies with employee earned income tax credits and voluntary benefit programs
Employee retention in our profession is a huge challenge, and turnover is costly. Agencies are continually exploring new ways to retain your valued employees. One way to do that is to put more money in your employees’ pockets. NES provides you the opportunity to help secure increased monies for your lower paid employees through the IRS Earned Income Credit laws. In addition, the federal government will REFUND any earned income credit not claimed by the employees on tax returns for the past three years. NES will assist your employees in determining whether they qualify for such a refund which could be as much as $1,000 per year.
The timing of this Government Tax Credit Program could not be more crucial as employees are struggling financially during this very difficult period of COVID-19. Providing these dollars from the Government goes a long way to help address your employees’ financial concerns…all at no cost to your company.
Finally, NES has designed an affordable voluntary benefits package, specifically for home care employees and their family members who normally cannot afford insurance. These benefits provide protection/coverage for the substantial out of pocket high deductible expenses that are included in both employer group plans and government exchange policies. This program has also proven to lower Worker’s Comp costs.
If you are interested in more information on these programs, please contact Howard Labow at NES at (800) 966-6637 Ext. 239 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
