Optional model lunch meeting - Monday, March 11th, 12:45 - 13:30, RA 1501

Do you know what the benefits of the Optional Model for UT employees are? As a PhD candidate, you can apply online for a tax-free allowance via the optional model in 2013 (you can obtain a bicycle, a refund on your commuting costs, extra holidays or trade unused holidays for money).

We have organized a lunch meeting on the topic, so that you know all about your options, can make the best out of your unused holidays and pay less tax. During the lunch meeting, Ireen Miessen, HR personnel on Optional Model, will go through the web application, explaining each step and its significance.
