government employees, the information gathered by the NASCOE Benefits Committee

processes as easy as possible, lacking our own MIDAS Team!

Once there you will need to enter your employer and personal information. The
employer info is as follows:

After you have entered your personal info and click submit you will be requested to

of my earning and leave statement to the fax number provided. You will need to black
out your SS# and dollar amounts. Worked for me!

is 1-866-805-9889 and ask for a sales representative. Our Government account code is

my understanding that they will convert your plan to a ―Government Plan‖.
