Choosing a Financial Planner
<p><a adhocenable="false" href="/content/bc-web/offices/human-resources/policies-forms/hr-forms.html#subsidy"><span class="btn btn-default btn-maroon">Financial Planning Subsidy Form</span></a></p> <h3>Credentials, Licenses, and Education</h3> <p>The person should have a four-year degree, preferably in a finance-related field. Many individuals have moved into a financial planning specialty after first training as accountants or lawyers.</p> <p>There are two certificates that indicate specific training in the field of financial planning:</p> <ul> <li>Certified Financial Planner (CFP)</li> <li>Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC)</li> </ul> <h3><span style="font-weight: normal;">Experience</span></h3> <p>Look for someone with solid experience (at least five years, preferably more) in the financial planning field, or at the very least with strong experience in the related fields of insurance or securities. You should probably look beyond someone who has recently moved into the field after making a career change. The person you choose should have a good knowledge of tax laws, the financial products available on the market place today (not just the ones your planner may sell), retirement plan options, and a broad spectrum of investments in general.</p> <h3><span style="font-weight: normal;">Compensation</span></h3> <p>Financial planners are paid in one of three ways:</p> <ul> <li>A flat fee is charged, based on the client's needs.</li> <li>Commissions are earned from the products they sell.</li> <li>A combination of both.</li> </ul> <p>You should know in advance how your financial planner is to be compensated. Sometimes a flat-fee arrangement may be the most expensive. However, you need to know how much of a planner's compensation is to be derived from products you buy in order to decide whether it is better to buy the product carrying a commission or to pay a flat fee to the planner. Also, it is important to remember that the potential for a conflict of interest is greater if the fee is commission driven.</p> <h3><span style="font-weight: normal;">References</span></h3> <p>Don't hesitate to request the names of several clients, both long term and short term. Then call the references and ask how satisfied they were with the financial planner's work.</p> <h3><span style="font-weight: normal;">Specialization</span></h3> <p>Financial planning is a broad field, and not all planners are qualified in all areas. Try to be sure that the planner you are choosing is knowledgeable in the areas in which you are interested (e.g., estate planning, investment management, overall financial planning, and so on).</p>
<p>While the Benefits Office is not prepared to recommend specific financial planners, the following comments are intended to provide some guidance to employees who are seeking financial planning services.</p>

Compensation FAQ
<h3>What is Boston College's pay philosophy?</h3> <p>BC's pay philosophy targets the mean of the defined competition.</p> <h3>What is the current Minimum Wage?</h3> <p>The Massachusetts Minimum Wage is currently $12.00/hour, effective January 1, 2019.</p> <h3>When do I get paid?</h3> <p>Members of the professional administrative staff are paid on the 16th of the month for work performed that month (except in cases where the 16th falls on a Saturday or Sunday, at which time payments are made on the Friday prior to the 16th). Office, clerical and service staff are paid on the last working day of the week for work performed the previous week.</p> <h3>What is a Market Reference Point (MRP)?</h3> <p>A &quot;Market Reference Point&quot; (MRP) is assigned to each position. It is derived from the average actual paid salary in the external labor market according to salary survey data or, if benchmark data is not available, on comparisons with benchmarked positions.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.bc.edu/content/bc-web/offices/human-resources/about/compensation-office.html#market-pricing">LEARN MORE ABOUT MRP</a></p> <h3>How are salary ranges determined?</h3> <p>Each position has a salary range based on its MRP. The salary range for each position can be calculated by multiplying the MRP by 80% to arrive at the range minimum and by 120% to arrive at the range maximum. For example: Position X has an MRP of $40,000:<br> <br> Minimum of salary range = $40,000 * .80 = $32,000<br> Maximum of salary range = $40,000 * 1.20 = $48,000<br> <br> The salary range is then $32,000 to $48,000.</p> <h3>How can I find out the MRP for my position?</h3> <p>You may contact the Compensation Office.<br> </p> <h3>How are hiring ranges determined?</h3> <p>The hiring range, for job posting purposes, is the range minimum to the MRP. In the example above, the hiring range would be $32,000 - $40,000.</p> <h3>How are starting salaries for new hires determined?</h3> <p>The hiring department, in consultation with Human Resources, reviews the candidate's qualifications and experience and also looks at the current salaries of comparable positions to ensure internal equity.</p> <h3>How can I get a copy of my Role Description?<br> </h3> <p>You can ask your supervisor or contact the Compensation Office for this document.</p> <h3><br> What if my Role Description isn't up-to-date?<br> </h3> <p>Role Descriptions detail a position's key responsibilities. You should review your role description annually with your supervisor during your performance appraisal. If substantial changes have occurred and he/she agrees that an additional review by the Compensation Office is warranted, he/she will need to revise the role description and secure approval from the division/school head and/or division/school administrator who will forward the updated role description to the Compensation Office for review.</p> <h3>What is the difference between an exempt and a non-exempt position?</h3> <p>The&nbsp;<a href="https://www.bc.edu/content/bc/offices/compensation/job_classificationprocess.html#flsa">Fair Labor Standards Act</a>&nbsp;(FLSA) determines which positions are classified as exempt and non-exempt. An exempt&nbsp;position is exempt from the overtime pay provisions of the FLSA, the employee must be paid on a salaried basis, and must perform work duties that the FLSA defines as exempt based on his/her major job functions. A non-exempt&nbsp;position is eligible for overtime pay and&nbsp;the employee must be paid the prevailing minimum wage.</p> <h3>What happens if I work more than my normal workweek as a non-exempt&nbsp;employee?<img src="https://www.bc.edu/libs/cq/ui/resources/0.gif" width="11" height="12"><br> </h3> <p>Non-exempt staff are eligible for payment for extra/overtime hours worked at the request of the supervisor at times when workloads or unusual circumstances make it necessary. Whenever possible, the extra hours will be offset by allowing the employee an equivalent number of hours off during the same pay period so that the total hours worked will not exceed 40 in a week. &quot;Compensatory time&quot; for extra/overtime hours is not permitted to be carried over to subsequent weeks. Extra hours worked between&nbsp;regulary scheduled hours&nbsp;and 40 per week are compensated at the regular hourly rate; overtime hours beyond 40 in a week are compensated at one and one-half times the regular rate.</p> <h3>What is a performance appraisal?<br> </h3> <p>As part of the overall Performance Management Program, the formal performance appraisal is a summary of the year-long communication between supervisor and employee. The appraisal normally occurs annually in March.</p> <h3>Who is eligible for a performance appraisal?<br> </h3> <p>A&nbsp;performance appraisal&nbsp;should be prepared for each employee who has completed the new hire probationary period (i.e., exempt professional/administrative employees hired on or prior to December 1, and non-exempt technical, clerical, and Dining service employees hired prior to February 1) and has a scheduled review date of June 1.&nbsp;<u></u></p> <h3>When am I eligible for a performance appraisal if I recently transferred to a new department?<br> </h3> <p>Employees who transferred to another department after January 1, should be reviewed by their previous supervisor. The completed appraisal document and a merit increase recommendation should then be forwarded to the employee's current supervisor.</p> <h3>How is a performance appraisal done?</h3> <p>The supervisor and the employee should jointly decide the most effective method of completing and reviewing the appraisal forms. In some instances, the supervisor may first complete the form and then give it to the employee for completion; or each may complete a separate form to be compared and discussed during the appraisal session.&nbsp;Appraisal tips for the supervisor&nbsp;and&nbsp;appraisal tips for the employee&nbsp;will assist you with preparing for a successful and productive appraisal discussion.&nbsp;</p> <h3>When should performance appraisals be completed?</h3> <p>They should be completed during March and April. Please see the&nbsp;Yearly Calendar for Implementing Performance Management&nbsp;in order to learn how the performance appraisal fits with the overall Performance Management Program.</p> <p>The performance of new employees is reviewed at the end of the official probationary period, that is, after six months of employment for exempt employees and four months of employment for non-exempt employees. Probationary reviews provide an opportunity for the supervisor and the employee to determine the appropriateness of continued employment for the employee and to discuss performance and areas for further development.</p> <h3>Who is eligible for a probationary salary increase?<br> </h3> <p>Exempt employees hired between December&nbsp;2 and May 31 and non-exempt employees hired between February 1 and May 31 are not eligible for the annual merit review. Instead, they are eligible for a salary increment in conjunction with their probationary review.</p> <h3>What if I have a question that isn't listed here?</h3> <p>Further questions regarding general compensation practices may be directed to the Compensation Office by phone at 617-552-3184.</p>

Student Employment
<p>The policies evolved from several general premises:</p> <ul> <li>A person is either &quot;primarily a student&quot; or &quot;primarily an employee,&quot; and it makes sense to keep &quot;student-primacy&quot; status separate and distinct from &quot;employee-primacy&quot; status.</li> <li>A person may not be on both the student payroll and the non-student payroll simultaneously.</li> <li>We want to avoid situations where two students are doing essentially the same work (e.g., department receptionist), but one is paid a &quot;student job&quot; rate while working next to another student hired through the Temp Pool who is receiving a higher rate.</li> <li>We do not want to compete against ourselves in seeking to fill positions.</li> <li>We do not want to be paying for benefits for our own students.</li> </ul> <p><span class="btn btn-default btn-maroon"><a adhocenable="false" href="https://www.bc.edu/content/bc-web/offices/student-services/student-employment.html">Student Employment Website</a></span></p>
