POP Compliance

When companies participate in a Section 125 Premium Only Plan (Bancover's Shared Benefits Plan™), they reduce payroll taxes and Workers' Compensation costs. Plus, they increase their employees' net income.

How Does a POP Work

A Premium Only Plan (POP) gives employees the option to pay their portion of insurance premium and contribute to a Health Savings Account (HSA) on a pre-tax basis. The pre-tax contributions reduce an employee's gross wages by the amount contributed which also lowers their federal, state, and social security taxes, thus increasing their take-home pay.
