Employees' needs are as varied as their lifestyles, and benefit programs need to be flexible to accommodate those differences. At The Minor Field Insurance Agency, we not only recognize, but welcome this diversity.
There are two FSA options. A Health Care FSA is an alternate way of paying your share of your health care costs. In the same manner, a Dependent/Child Care FSA reimburses you for expenses for dependents and childcare which are necessary to allow you and your spouse to work.
When you create an FSA, you choose to have a specific amount of your annual salary withheld from your paycheck and deposited to your FSA. These withholdings are on a pre-tax basis.
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA's) are benefit options designed to increase your disposable income by reducing the amount of taxes you pay. An FSA enables you to use pretax dollars to pay for qualified health care expenses which are not reimbursed under any health care plan or insurance plan, and for qualified dependent/child care expenses.
