Upcoming Events:

New Hires to the Issaquah School District – Retirement Plan Decision Seminars.

IEA will be hosting four New Member Retirement Planning Seminars to help members new to the profession, or new to the State of Washington, in the process of selecting their retirement plan.
These will be held at the IEA office on Sept 19th, 29th Oct 11 and 20 from 4:30 to 5:30 pm.

Financial planners from NEA Retirement and/or WEA VALIC will be explaining your retirement plan options.
Please RSVP to Margie at the IEA office (425 392-2126)

As a new employee, you are required to choose a retirement plan. The form required for this decision was included in your orientation packet. You are given 90 days from your hire date to make your choice, so you can gather information and make an informed decision. We encourage you not to make this selection casually as your decision is permanent.

Open Enrollment begins August 22, 2016 and runs through September 30, 2016
This will be your only time to make medical benefit changes for the upcoming plan year.

To make changes to your medical plan starting August 22nd, you will need to complete the appropriate change process:


  • Online Premera Plan Enrollment changes through their website completed by 9:59 pm (Pacific Time) on Friday, 09/30/2016 will be effective 11/1/2016 (October payroll deduction).
  • Group Health enrollment/change forms received in the Payroll Department by 4:30 pm on Friday, 9/30/2016 will be effective 11/1/2016 (October Payroll deduction)
