Clipper Employer Benefits Program
The Employer Benefits Program provides savings for both the employees and employer. The employee’s Clipper Card is loaded monthly on a pre-tax basis, (which is about a 40% savings, implemented in the same way as a health savings account). The employer saves on payroll tax on those amounts, at 7.65%. The program is implemented seamlessly using a web-based platform. The employer cost is $3 per month per participant, which should be more than offset by the payroll tax savings.
A company can self sign-up by visiting the Clipper website and clicking on “Employer. The sign-up process:
- Print and mail back a copy of the signed Agreement
- Input bank account and routing numbers
- Upload a file of participating employees
For more information, visit the Clipper website.
