What Is a Section 125 Plan?
In a Section 125 plan, employees pay for qualified expenses on a pre-tax basis through salary reductions. Because employees’ contributions are deducted before taxes are withheld, this reduces their taxable income, providing tax savings for both the employer and employee.
Companies of any size are all eligible for Section 125 plans, and any employee who satisfies the eligibility criteria can participate.
What Is Included in a Section 125 Plan?
A Section 125 (cafeteria) plan allows employees to pick from a selection of offerings. Your company will pay a maximum for each employee, and any costs beyond that maximum will be paid by the employee through payroll deductions.
Available health and welfare options on a Section 125 plan can include:
- Supplemental Life/AD&D
- Short- and Long-Term Disability
A Section 125 plan may also include:
- Health Savings Account (HSA): An account for pre-tax contributions in a high deductible health plan (HDHP) that can be used for qualified health expenses (medical, dental, vision).
- Flexible Spending Account (FSA): An account for pre-tax contributions that can be used for health (medical, dental, vision), dependent care, and parking/transit expenses.
When selecting your Section 125 plan, working with an advisor will help you choose the plan that is most cost-effective and provides the coverage options your employees need.
