Pre-Tax Savings Account Program

​Pre-Tax Savings Account Program

The Pre-Tax Savings Account program allows you to set aside money on a pre-tax basis to pay for everyday medical, dental, vision, day care, parking and transit expenses.  These accounts are also known as Flexible Spending Accounts.  LTEs are only eligible to participate in the Pre-Tax Parking and Transit Account​ programs.

All plans are managed by Optum Financial | ConnectYourCare (CYC).

See the Pre-Tax S​avings Account​​ page on the Department of Employee Trust Funds website for full details.

Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
