what is flex benefits?

With Salary Extras, it’s not just the employer that has choice, employees have it too. With flex benefits, you can set an allowance for your employees to spend on schemes however they wish.

When an employee applies for a scheme, they’ll get the option to contribute to it from their flex benefits pot. They can either contribute some of their flexible benefits allowance from their pot to cover a percentage of the overall cost, or they can use their pot to cover the cost of it all, providing they have enough funds in their allowance.

The employee’s flex benefits pot allowance is set by their employer. The employer chooses both the allowance they give the employee and how often they refresh their allowance.
