A cafeteria plan is a type of employee benefit plan offered in the United States pursuant to Section 125 of the Internal Revenue Code. Its name comes from the earliest such plans that allowed employees to choose between different types of benefits, similar to the ability of a customer to choose among available items in a cafeteria. Qualified cafeteria plans are excluded from gross income. To qualify a cafeteria plan must allow employees to choose from a selection of two or more benefits consisting of cash or qualified benefit plans.
We make sure the plan is set up properly and show employees how to identify their pre-tax premium deduction in their paycheck.
