As a new mom I was nervous about hiring a nanny, but now I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve sung your praises to everyone I know.
Quality of applicants was way above what we had hoped for. Thoroughly enjoyed working with your agency – we will highly recommend you to friends.
I have used two other agencies, both were difficult to work with and did not live up to their promises and Morningside Nannies did.
I just wanted to let you know that Elizabeth is fantastic! She is great with the boys, and so helpful with such a calm and pleasant way of being. We are so happy with her.
We’ve placed ads in newspapers on two occasions and have gone through an Au Pair program twice. This has been our best experience by far!
I am delighted with the outcome, and enjoyed the process.
I wanted to pass along how happy I am to have Fatima working with our family. After just 11/2 days, I can see that she is a perfect fit for for child. We are lucky to have her.
Morningside was by far the best as compared to the other services we used!
We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
I trust Morningside Nannies & their research into their nannies more than any of the other seven agencies we talked with. The checks are reliable and the quality of nannies was superb. The process of finding a nanny was handled quite professionally.
For many nannies, having health insurance as part of their nanny employment package is essential.
Nannies work with children in such an intimate setting that they are readily exposed to the illnesses of the family who employs them. Since being exposed to germs is part of the job, it’s important that nannies be and stay healthy so that they can do their jobs effectively.
According to a 2012 International Nanny Association Salary and Benefits Survey, 16% of full-time nannies reported that they received 100% of their health insurance premium paid for by their employing family and 10% reported that they received 50% of their health insurance premiums paid by their employing family.
Since contributions paid towards a nanny’s health insurance premium are considered non-taxable income when part of an FSA, HRA or POP plan, many employers opt to provide this valuable benefit since neither they nor the employee is required to pay taxes on the contributed funds, resulting in significant savings to both the nanny and employer.
By reducing the employee’s salary in an amount equivalent to the annual health insurance premium, the nanny secures health insurance and her taxable income is reduced, resulting in an increase in her net pay. Employers benefit from providing health insurance as they can contribute to their nanny’s health insurance premium with tax-free dollars through the payroll process, therefore decreasing employer taxes.
If you’re in need of health insurance or considering providing health insurance benefits for your nanny, please contact one of the following nanny health insurance specialists:
