September 2017 ASHI Contributions and Medicare Part B Reimbursements

Please be aware that nine hundred and thirty-eight (938) retirees were affected by a glitch in the ASHI September 2017 payroll process which resulted in the following:  

1. ASHI premiums were not deducted from the September 2017 pension benefit. 

As a result, the ASHI deductions for September and October will be deducted from the October 2017 pension benefit. 

2. Medicare Part B reimbursements were not paid within the customary time frame, but we are in the process of facilitating those disbursements. 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
