Streamline compliance.
Maximize tax savings.

IRC section 125 cafeteria plan

To get the most out of your group-sponsored benefit plan, employees should have the option to make premium payments on a pre-tax basis. But the IRS requires a Premium Only Plan (POP) to facilitate the necessary payroll deductions.

  • Health Savings Account (HSA) contributions
  • Voluntary premiums (e.g. vision and dental care)
  • Group-term life insurance premiums (under $50,000)

Comply with confidence

Choose a partner with the experience and expertise to help you get it right—right from the start.

Maximize tax savings

Give your people an instant raise by enabling them to save on income and payroll taxes. Or you can share more of the premium costs without reducing employee take home pay. Plus, your organization will be able to capitalize on FICA tax savings—nearly 8% on every dollar.

Don't risk noncompliance

Failure to adhere to Section 125 regulations can bring unwanted headaches. Deductions may be disallowed back to inception. Employers and employees may be taxed on past deductions (with interest). And the IRS may assess “improper withholding” penalties, which may require repayment for FICA taxes.
