                       COMMUNICATIONS AUTHORITY
Survey question: Please respond if you offer a Section 125 plan; whether you
have a third-party administrator (and their fees) or whether you administer the
plan in-house. If in-house, what position is responsible?

City of Alhambra
In-house; Assistant Finance Director.

City of Bellflower
Yes we offer a 125 plan. TLC is our plan administrator.

City of Culver City’
Section 125 plan is administered by a third-party (AmeriFlex). Their monthly
flexible spending administration fee is $6 per participant. Our employees enroll
through our broker and Personnel initiates the payroll deduction.

City of Dixon
We use AFLAC as a third party administrator. They charge an up front fee plus
$5 per employee/per month , enrolled in the program.

City of Dublin
We have a plan that is administered in-house. At previous employers I have
used third party administrators, which I would recommend doing if you have a
choice. The HIPPA issues, eligibility determination and other administrative
tasks are best handled by people who do this for a living. It also tends to keep
the plan in alignment with changes in the law (my opinion). The third-party I used
was Creative Benefits in San Diego County. www.creativebenefits.com.

City of Fullerton
Yes we do, and we administer the plan in-house. An Accountant ll is responsible
for the program.

pay for the participant).
