Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) allow career postal workers to use pre-tax dollars to pay for out-of-pocket health care, dental, and vision expenses not covered by insurance, including co-payments and deductibles.

Employees can also set up a Flexible Spending Account for dependent care expenses for children and aging parents.

The money withheld for FSAs is not subject to taxes.
