Horace Mann (125 Cafeteria Plan):

The Cafeteria Plan is a non-traditional benefit program that allows employees to elect to have their out-of-pocket cost for qualified items (insurance premiums, daycare and unreimbursed medical expenses), which they may incur during a given plan year, to be set aside from their pay on a pre-tax basis. The federal and state income tax as well as social security tax is saved by the employee on the total amount they elect. To the employee, this means they would be receiving a raise, in the form of a lower tax withholding from their pay. Effective for the 2013/2014 school year, the maximum amount to set aside for medical expenses is $2,500. PAY-FLEX is the administrator for the Horace Mann 125 Plan.
