In this section, we'll discuss a wide array of other employee benefits, some of which are more commonplace than others. For example, dental insurance is as frequent an offering amongst employers as are cafeteria plans, vision plans and flexible spending accounts. Fringe benefits and group long-term care may vary considerably in their availability with employers.

We will provide a basic overview of each benefit, its mechanics, taxation, as well as advantages and disadvantages.
