What Are The Cafeteria Plan Requirements For Employers?

A Cafeteria Plan, also known as a Section 125 plan (the IRS rule section), allows employees to pay for specific benefits on a pre-tax basis. Doing so means that employees have more take home pay, and employers pay less in matching payroll taxes - a true win-win for employees and employers!

As with almost everything government, there are speficic rules and requirements. The Cafeteria Plan requirements for employers include:

  • Determining eligible benefits
  • Setting election caps
  • Establishing election periods
  • The Use-It-Or-Lose-It rule
  • Status Change rules
  • Acknowledging Highly-Compensated individuals
  • Passing non-discrimination testing
