Flexible Spending Account

Offer employees options to pay for health and dependent care

Why provide a Flexible Spending Account?

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is the most popular flexible benefit plan. It allows employees to set aside pretax salary to pay for health care and dependent care expenses. They're easy to establish, to administer and to use with an FSA debit card. Accounts are fully funded by the employee through payroll deduction, offering you a reduction in payroll tax.
