I recently received a raise at work, but I'm now taking home less pay. This is due to our medical insurance plan. It's tier based and apparently my meager $283 / year increase has now caused me to lose $1,200 / year.
This raise was due to a position change (it's so small since it's just aligning me with the bottom tier of that position, I'll receive a more substantial increase in 6 monyhs), however I also would have more than exceeded the new threshold next year in my old position just due to annual increases.
Would it be bad form to ask for a raise on the raise since it's now costing me more money?
In case it's needed I work for a private company, no contract in Florida (USA) and am a salaried full time employee.
Additional clarification. Without consulting hr I can't say for sure and I doubt they'd tell me anyway, but I believe my new rate of pay is the exact cut off for the next insurance rate tier. If I had stayed in my new position i would have surpassed that cutoff (ie my current rate) by at least $1,000. In 6 months I'm expected to see an increase of $5,000 above my current rate.
