Must an existing insurance program be redesigned
to take advantage of a Flexible Benefits Plan?

No. A change is not required in either the group medical, health of group life plan, unless your organization would be changing them independent of adoption of the Flexible Benefits Plan. The premium payments made by the employees to cover their benefits are still handled through your payroll department - they are just convened to pre-tax rather than after-tax deductions, *State and local taxes may not be excluded in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

A Flexible Savings Plan allows your firm to:

SAVE substantial tax dollars: as employees' gross compensation is reduced, the amount of Social Security taxes you'll have to pay immediately decreases!

PROVIDE a benefit package tailored to meet each employees individual needs!

INCREASE employee morale by enhancing the employees' benefit package and increasing employee take-home pay at no additional cost to the employer!
