Offering employee benefits is an important consideration for all household employers. Families can get tax savings while providing more than a paycheck – they can attract and retain the best nannies by offering them tangible benefits such as health insurance, savings accounts, and retirement plans.
Health Benefit Options
• Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)
• Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRAs)
• Qualified Small Employer (QSE) HRAs
• Premium Only Plan (POP)
Retirement Plans: Offering a 401(k) or IRA will not only give families a recruiting advantage over other families and a retention tool for their employee, but it will also help their nanny build an excellent source of retirement income and experience the benefits of tax-deferred growth.
Concierge Medicine: Nannies can get answers to medical questions, schedule a consult, and share pictures or videos with a doctor. Perfect for diagnosing and treating colds, allergies, rashes, injuries, and more, so nannies don’t miss work going to the doctor or calling in sick.
Transit Parking FSA: For workers who need assistance paying for transit and parking, employers and employees can set aside up to $520 a month in a tax-free Transit and Parking FSA account.
