New Employee App Tutorial
Is a "lifestyle spending account" the same thing as a Wellness Spending Account (WSA)?
Yes! Whether a company offers a “Wellness Spending Account,” a “Personal Spending Account,” or a “Lifestyle Spending Account” these are all the same. The employer decides what taxable benefits the employee can make claims on.
My client does not want to add a WSA because of the administration of the program, is there a way to make it easy for them?
Many clients have run in-house wellness programs, that require a lot of work to administer. With myWSA, the client sets their eligible expense list, we adjudicate on their behalf, and take care of reimbursing employees! We also keep a running total of the taxable benefit they'll report on the T4! So easy!
