Purim Party with Hillel @ Alfred!

Saturday, March 29 at the Hillel House from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Purim celebrates a story from the Book of Ester in which Ester, a young Jewish woman, becomes the queen of Persia. The royal vizier, Haman, creates a plan to kill all of the Jewish people in Persia. Ester, along with her cousin Mordecai, foils his plot. This holiday celebrates of the triumph of Jewish people over those who wish to harm or oppress them.

All are welcome, regardless if they are Jewish or not. Anyone is welcome to attend or ask questions to learn about this holiday.

Overall this party will be fairly casual and its primary focus will not be on formal religious rituals.

Festivities will include refreshments such as hamantashen (traditional Purim cookies that contain fillings such as jam or poppy seeds) and a variety of mock-tails, wearing zany clothes (or even a costume if you're feeling bold), and other shenanigans.

For more information please email hillel@alfred.edu or ask about it during Friday Kiddush. Hope to see you there!

NEW Electronic Personnel Action Forms (EPAF)

Do you hire Non-Work Study hourly student workers in your department?

Human Resources is excited to announce that we have been piloting a new electronic form for submission of jobs. This form is called an EPAF (electronic personnel action form) this electronic form will eliminate the current paper form and make things easier and quicker for all involved.

Training will be held in the Kenyon/Allen Room in the Powell Campus Center on the following dates:

Tuesday, April 2- 10:00am-11:00am
Thursday, April 4- 1:00pm-2:00pm
Monday, April 8- 11:00am-12:00pm
Friday, April 12- 2:00pm-3:00pm

Please plan to attend one of these trainings if you are someone who normally prepares the current paper form to hire non-work study hourly students.

For the Fall Semester, for any non-work study hourly student that is hired, we will only be accepting the EPAF form, not the paper form.

HR Tip of the Month

Did you know that the IRS has announced updated retirement plan contribution limits for 2019?

403(b) Plan Contribution Limits:
For 2019, the contribution limit for employees into this type of account is rising from $18,500 in 2018 to $19,000 in 2019.
For participants who are age 50 and older, the catch-up contribution amount of $6,000 has not changed. Meaning that older savers can choose to defer up to $25,000 of their compensation into their accounts.

How do you open a Supplemental Retirement Account (SRA) with AU?
1. First you have to decide how much money you want to set aside.
2. Secondly you have to decide if you want that money to be a Pre-Tax or Post-Tax deduction.

-Pre-tax contribution is the amount of deductions you make from your bi-weekly gross wage into your 403b retirement savings account, BEFORE taxes have been deducted. By making pre-tax contributions, you are lowering your current taxable income.
-Post-Tax contribution is the amount of deductions you make from your bi-weekly gross wage into your 403b retirement savings account, AFTER taxes have been deducted. By making post-tax contributions, you do not have to pay tax on withdrawals because you've already paid taxes

3. Third, you contact HR, as detailed below, and we would be happy to help you!

Non-Statutory (Regular AU Employees):
With this type of account we are able to process your contribution as a flat dollar amount, not a percentage. If you wish to open a new account you should fill out the form attached and return to Kim Wyant, HR Assistant, in Human Resources.

Statutory (NYSCC):
With this type of account we are able to process your contribution as a flat dollar amount, not a percentage. If you wish to open a new account you should contact, Kayleigh Misner, HR Generalist, to set up your appointment to enroll in either a pre-tax or post-tax SRA account.
