Pre-Tax Benefits

The pre-tax benefits offered by SEGIP and administered by 121 Benefits can provide you with substantial tax savings by paying:

  • Your share of Minnesota Advantage Health Plan and/or State Dental Plan or State of Minnesota HealthPartners Dental Plan premiums through the Health and Dental Premium Accounts (HDPA).
  • Eligible dependent daycare expenses through the Dependent Care Expense Account (DCEA).
  • Eligible out-of-pocket medical and dental expenses through the Medical/Dental Expense Account (MDEA).
  • Most transportation commuting expenses through the Transportation Expense Account (TEA).

The pre-tax benefits are available to employees paid through the State's Central Payroll.

New Feature: The $500 Carryover now applies to the Medical/Dental Expense Account. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions document located on the 121 Benefits website.
