Subject: Input on Amherst Budget
PLEASE CONSIDER THIS MONEY-SAVING IDEA:
My husband’s company pays our $165/month premium for a family health insurance policy through my company.
This has been a great incentive for us to use my company’s plan instead of his, and it saves his company around $800 a month for our family alone.
If Amherst (town and schools) could offer to pay employees’ partners’ premiums—in part or in full—the town could save a lot of money. It’s really a win-win plan.
Thanks for asking for the community’s input.
