Flexible Benefits Plan
A benefit program that offers employees a choice between various benefits including cash, life insurance, health insurance, vacations, retirement plans, and child care.
Although a common core of benefits may be required, you can choose how your remaining benefit dollars are to be allocated for each type of benefit from the total amount promised by the employer.
Sometimes you can contribute more for additional coverage.
Also known as a Cafeteria plan or IRS 125 Plan.
