A Note About Annual Benefit Maximums

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) allow you to set aside before-tax money to use for certain eligible expenses not covered by your health plans or to pay for certain dependent day care expenses. Using an FSA can save you from 20% to 40% depending on your tax bracket.

The Firm offers three types of FSAs: a Health Care FSA, a Limited Purpose FSA* and a Dependent Day Care FSA. The Health Care and Dependent Day Care FSAs are administered by UnitedHealthcare (UHC). The Limited Purpose FSA is administered by Your Savings Account.

*The Limited Purpose FSA is only available to employees enrolled in Medical Plan Option C and can only be used for eligible dental and vision expenses.

Dental Contributions

You and the Firm share the cost of your Dental Plan coverage. Your contributions are deducted from your pay on a before-tax basis.

Note: Your location and salary band are used to calculate only your medical contribution rates.

The costs shown below are per paycheck contributions. For the monthly cost, double the amounts shown.
