Flexible Benefits Plan Options for Municipal Employees Association (MEA) FY2021

Below are the Flexible Benefits Plan (FBP) credits and options that are available to Municipal Employees Association (MEA) members.


FBP Credits

The City provides dollars in the form of FBP Credits that you can apply towards your health (medical, dental, vision) or life insurance premiums and Flexible Spending Accounts. Certain credit tiers also have a cash-back option, with the ability to allocate excess credits towards 401(k) or distributed as taxable income.  If your coverage falls under a tier that does not have the cash-back option, then you will not be eligible for the 401(k) flex option or excess credits paid as taxable income.
