More than 200 CNM workers owe school for insurance

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Central New Mexico Community College says more than 200 employees owe money on their health and life insurance benefits, while the school owes money to other workers.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that some employees underpaid on their health and life insurance benefits, while others overpaid. CNM President Kathie Winograd sent an email Tuesday explaining the situation and saying she deeply regrets the error.

In total, employees owe about $89,000 to the school and the college owes about $9,000 to its staff.

The number of effected employees could change because CNM has only reviewed 40 percent of flagged employees.

Winograd says a clause in the state constitution requires CNM to collect the debts owed to it, even if they were caused by the school’s mistake. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
