Pretax dollars are used to pay for certain medical expenses and dependent day care costs. The plan allows you to avoid taxation on a portion of your income. You save taxes on every dollar you deposit.
You elect to deposit a portion of your salary pretax into a Cafeteria account. This account is used to reimburse you for eligible expenses. You determine how much money you will spend on a an annual basis and elect to take a monthly salary reduction for those expenses. The funds are placed into a special account that you may withdraw when eligible claims are submitted and processed. The reimbursement is completely tax free for the covered expenses.
For inquiries on a claim, please contact Professional Benefit Services at 1-800-982-2012.
