POP

A Premium Only Plan (POP) involves one simple payroll change that saves taxes for you and your employees, but it must be referenced in your plan documents in order to be compliant. POP language can be included in your FSA/DCA cafeteria plan documents as part of our regular service, upon request. For groups that do not have an FSA/DCA cafeteria plan, Choice Strategies is pleased to offer EZPOP - a compliant and cost-effective WageWorks solution for Premium Only Plan (POP) administration. For a flat, annual fee, employers receive a signature-ready, customized Premium Only Plan Kit and access to a dedicated POP Compliance support team. 

The EZPOP brochure and application can be found here, or for more information, please visit ezpop.com
