Unanet Benefits Overview 


We are committed to our employees and are proud to offer a variety of benefits with flexibility and wellness in mind. 


Health & Wellness
Unanet provides generous employer contributions to the medical premiums for employees and their dependents. For employee-only coverage, Unanet covers 90-100% of the premium, depending on the plan. For employees enrolled with dependents, Unanet covers 65-79% of premium dependent on coverage tier and plan. Please see the monthly medical deduction amounts on page 3.

Unanet offers three (3) Medical plans through UMR, including a high-deductible health plan (HDHP) which enables you to contribute pre-tax dollars to a Health Savings Account (HSA) of your choice. Employees enrolled in the HDHP will receive an employer contribution to their HSA. The current annual employer contributions are $750 Individual, $1,350 Family. Unanet also offers two (2) Dental plans through Cigna and two (2) Vision plans through VSP. Our employees are eligible for our benefits plan effective the 1st of the month following their date of hire.

If you add a new dependent to the medical plan as part of your new hire enrollment, during Open Enrollment, or due to a Qualified Life Event, you will be required to upload your proof of dependent coverage into Paylocity. You can refer to the list of acceptable documentation in the 2024 Benefits Webguide.


Flexible Spending Account
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) provide you the opportunity to save pre-tax dollars for eligible health and dependent care expenses.. You can contribute up to $3,200 maximum, with a 2.5 month allowed grace period to incur expenses from the 2024 plan year, for Medical Reimbursements (HSA option for dental and vision only) and $5,000 for Dependent Care reimbursements.


401(k) Retirement Savings Plan
Unanet offers a 401(k) through Fidelity, with an employer match. Unanet matches 100% of the first 3% contributed by the employee and 50% of the next 2% contributed. Matching contributions are calculated on a per payroll basis. To leave no money on the table, if an employee contributes 5%, Unanet will match 4%. Employees are immediately vested in our employer match and are eligible to contribute to both Roth and/or Traditional retirement plans. There is an auto-deferral of 6% for new hires if they don’t opt out, along with an auto-escalation of 1% annually up to 15% total.
