Sam plans his Benefit Bucks to include a Life Planning Account.


Sam, married with a new dog, Rascal

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

How Sam uses his Benefit Bucks during 2023 Annual Enrollment

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