Pretax Benefit Plans

» Dependent Care Advantage Account

All employees are eligible to participate in the dependent care advantage account. Under this plan participating employees contribute a portion of their salary on a pre-tax basis (maximum of $5,000) to a flexible spending account to pay for expenses incurred for dependent care. Some bargaining units contribute additional funds to individual accounts. Generally a qualifying dependent is a person who:

  • qualifies as a dependent on your federal tax return, and
  • in the case of a family member, is a child under the age of 13, or an individual physically or mentally incapable of self-care.

» Health Care Spending Account

All employees who are eligible for health insurance are eligible to participate in the health care spending account. Under this plan participating employees contribute a portion of their salary on a pre-tax basis (maximum of $2,550) to a flexible spending account to pay for health care expenses not reimbursed by health insurance.
