Our benefits team can help with many important benefits, such as:
Coverage for medical, dental, and vision care to help employees manage their healthcare costs.
Coverage that provides financial support to an employee's beneficiaries in the event of their death.
Coverage that provides income replacement if an employee becomes disabled and unable to work.
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs):
Tax-advantaged accounts that allow employees to set aside pre-tax funds for
eligible medical expenses and child-care expenses.
Initiatives aimed at promoting employees' physical and mental well-being,
such as gym memberships, wellness challenges, and counseling services.
Some employee benefits may have tax implications for both the employer and the employee.
Certain benefits, such as health insurance premiums and FSA/HSA funding, may be
offered on a pre-tax basis stretching dollars much further. Offering employee benefits
requires careful planning, budgeting, and administrative management.
Employers need to consider the costs, compliance with regulations, and communication
to employees about available benefits. Some of our clients find it beneficial
to use our Employee Benefits Portal
to assist with communication to employees about available benefits and streamline enrollment.
