HARRISON FLEX SUPPLEMENTAL UNEMPLOYMENT ~ COVID-19

This is a temporary change to the Harrison Flex Wage Replacement requirements. Due to the long wait times for collecting unemployment we have changed the requirement of having to collect money first from Oregon Unemployment Insurance, before Wage Replacement can be disbursed, to simply having applied for unemployment. This is being done with the belief that your unemployment claim will not be denied. However, if for any reason your unemployment claim is denied you will have to pay the Wage Replacement back to Harrison. There are very strict IRS rules that absolutely must be followed.

When submitting this new form, you will also need to submit your flex plan form at the same time.
