Flexible Spending Account

The City offers Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA), also known as an IRS Section 125 cafeteria plan, which allows employees to have payroll deductions for health insurance premiums, un-reimbursed medical expenses and child/dependent care expenses to be withheld from salary ‘pre-taxed’; which is before income tax and social security deductions are calculated.

Switching expenses to ‘pre-tax’ can result in immediate tax savings on Social Security tax and Federal Income tax. Through payroll deductions, the maximum amount an employee can authorize the City to deduct for a Medical Reimbursement Account is set by the City.
