How to Sign Up
Does your employer offer pre-tax benefits?
Enroll during the open enrollment period for your employer’s plan -- You can sign up to be a part of your employer’s pre-tax benefit programs during open enrollment, which is typically between September and December for health care and dependent care pre-tax benefits, or at any time for commuter benefits. Talk to your employer’s HR director or benefits manager for more information about the enrollment process.
Suggest it for next year -- Send a note to your employer’s HR director or benefits manager with the suggestion to include all of these helpful pre-tax programs in your benefits package. These benefits are also valuable to companies who provide them because they reduce the company’s payroll taxes.
Pre-tax benefits are managed by your employer. Ask your employer’s HR director or benefits manager if one or more pre-tax benefits are part of your benefits package.
