Our Flexible Benefit Plan allows you to set aside money for the purpose of paying certain expenses with pre-tax dollars. Funds for this purpose are designated during open enrollment and deducted directly from paychecks. Funds may be used for out-of-pocket healthcare expenses or dependent day care expenses.
