SAM, married

“I can put Benefit Bucks into my Lifestyle PlanningAccount? That’s great — Rascal is a handful! I’m going to take advantage of the reimbursements for pet insurance.”

How Sam uses his 2023 Benefit Bucks during enrollment

  • Sam and his wife Amanda enroll in Schneider Electric’s vision benefits and pay for them with Benefit Bucks.
  • Also courtesy of Benefit Bucks, Sam purchases LTD Buy-up through Schneider Electric, so he receives 60% of his pay if he can’t work due to a long-term disability.
  • Sam elects to contribute the rest of his Benefit Bucks to his Life Planning Account (after taxes) so he can get reimbursed for Rascal’s pet insurance premiums.

Sam is paid semi-monthly, so his $500 in Benefit Bucks means he gets $20.84* per pay period to apply toward eligible benefits.
