Tap into benefits that help employees pursue their dreams

Many employers today offer voluntary Work-Life Employee Benefits Plans (also known as Lifestyle Benefits) to make a positive impact on employees’ quality of life while also helping organizations to recruit and retain top workers. These benefits are designed to make the life employees live – especially time outside of work – even more enjoyable.

We’re proud to partner with companies as their Work-Life Employee Benefits administrator. As with all Optum Financial accounts, we assist participants with fast payments, excellent customer service, and friendly technology. Explore the benefits programs we offer to learn more about how we can assist you.

Dependent Care FSA Programs

Dependent Care Assistance Program – Hold On to What Matters Most

Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (DCAP) allow employees to use pre-tax dollars to pay for qualified dependent care expenses.

If designed and administered the right way, a company’s Dependent Care FSA can help reduce employee stress and increase their workplace engagement — as well as their loyalty to the employer. That’s why so many companies across the U.S. use Optum Financial as their Dependent Care FSA administrator.

Commuter Benefits – A Smarter Way to Get to Work

Employers can save up to 7.65% on their payroll taxes as employees use pre-tax dollars to cover their commuting expenses. Additionally, commuter benefits can potentially save employees more than $1,300 each year (assuming a combined tax rate of 30%). Covered expenses include parking and work-related transportation — trains, buses, subways, ferries, and vanpools.

What’s more…your employees can now use pre-tax funds to pay for uberPOOL and Lyft Line rides! Your payment card can be directly tied to Uber and Lyft for shared rides and tax savings in many major cities, via partnerships with these leading U.S. rideshare companies.
