Premium Only Plan FSA
Premium Only Plan (POP)
A cafeteria plan, also known as a section 125 plan, is a written plan that allows employees to pay qualified benefit plan premium with pre-tax dollars.
What is needed to participate in the POP program?
You must elect to participate in any benefit program. At the time of hire and annually during open enrollment, you are able to make benefit changes and elections.
With a Premium-Only Plan, the employee does not have to make a fixed election. Advanstaff will simply “flex” all eligible premium payments on a pre-tax basis so taxes are not paid on those premium payments.
Easy Employee Savings
Employees can save 20 – 40% of their payroll deductions. The savings are on city, state, and federal income taxes, including Social Security and Medicare.
Easy Employer Savings
Employers save the matching Social Security (6.20%) and Medicare (1.45%) taxes, which equates to 7.65% (1.45% for municipalities) of all the dollars put through the plan, a substantial savings.
