Premium Only Plan (POP)

POP plans allow employees to elect to withhold a portion of their pre-tax salary to pay for their premium contribution for most employer-sponsored health and welfare benefit plans.

The plan offers a simple way to obtain favorable tax treatment for benefits already offered. Most companies currently have this set up through their payroll provider.  A POP plan is the simplest type of Section 125 plan and requires little maintenance once it's been set up through your payroll.
