Pre-Tax Benefits

The pre-tax benefits offered by SEGIP can provide employees with substantial tax savings by paying health and dental plan premiums, eligible dependent day care, medical, dental, and transportation expenses with pre-tax dollars. Contributions towards these accounts are taken from your paychecks before taxes are deducted, and since you pay less in taxes, your net income may be greater. Get started by viewing the Pre-Tax Benefits Information video.

Additional Pre-Tax Accounts

Health Reimbursement Account (HRA)

Eligible employees covered under the IFO collective bargaining agreement and the personnel plan for Administrators are eligible for a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA). The employer funded HRA can be used to reimburse the employee for certain out-of-pocket medical and dental expenses. View the bargaining agreement or plan that your position is covered by for additional details. The HRA is administered by BRI

Health Care Savings Plan (HCSP)

The HCSP is an employer-sponsored program that allows Minnesota Public employees to invest money in a medical savings account while employed. After you end employment, you may access the funds to reimburse eligible medical expenses incurred by you and your eligible dependents. Contributions to the HCSP are directed by the bargaining agreement or personnel plan your position is covered by. The HSCP is administered by the Minnesota State Retirement System (MSRS).
