The health and well-being of our employees is a primary concern of Galena Park Independent School District. The mission of the Employee Benefits Department is to provide competitive benefits and services to our employees with courtesy, dignity, and respect while maintaining confidentiality.
Coming Soon: A new form to use in preparing your '2015 income tax filing-"Form 1095-C".
2016 is the first year for required Employer Annual Health Care Reporting to the Government as outlined in the Affordable Care Act.
Under the health care reform law, most Americans are now required to have health insurance or pay a penalty on their income taxes.
All full time employees of Galena Park ISD will receive a Form 1095-C before the federal deadline of March 31, 2016.
Here's why you need the 1095-C.
- If you enrolled in GPISD medical coverage in 2015, the form provides information needed to report on your income tax return that you (and your spouse and dependents, if applicable) had qualifying health coverage for some or all months during the year.
- If you purchased health insurance coverage through the marketplace or HealthCare.gov in 2015 and wish to claim the premium tax credit, the form provides information that will help you determine your eligibility.
Galena Park ISD will send the Form 1095-C around March 31, 2016. You do not need to attach it the form to your income tax return-it is simply a reference tool for completing your income tax returns.
If you have any questions, please contact the Employee Benefits Team.
Will you have enough when you retire in 5-10-15 or 20 years?

This meeting will review:
- how to look at your future estimated TRS annuity
