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. Plan your expenses carefully, you may roll over up to $500 at the end of the plan year. Funds in excess of $500 will be forfeited.
