Employee benefit plan that allows the employee to choose among several different benefits offered by the employer. In essence, the employee is provided with the opportunity to make a trade-off by trading one benefit for another that best meets the employee's needs at a particular point in time. Contributions paid into the plan, whether on a contributory or noncontributory basis, can be allocated to satisfy the needs of a particular employee rather than those of the employees as a whole. The result should be a balance between the employee's primary needs and the benefit/cost constraints. Among the personal choices that the employee can make are health care plans (choices in types and amount of coverages), WELLNESS PROGRAM plans, child-care benefits, and LONG-TERM CARE (LTC) PLANS.
