ALEX saves your employees and your company serious money
ALEX shows employees exactly how much they’ll save when they make the right plan decisions and the right contributions to their FSAs, HSAs, and retirement accounts. Because ALEX explains these separate benefits clearly and holistically, employees are empowered to make better financial choices than their peers—which saves you money on premium costs and payroll taxes.
- Last year, ALEX users said they’d contribute an average of:
- $2,620 to their HSAs, 36% above the national average of $1,921*
- 11.2% of their pay to their 401(k), 65% above the national average of 6.8%**
- ALEX users’ HSA, FSA, and 401(K) contributions saved them a cool $312 million, and created $79 million in payroll tax savings for their employers
“So glad I did this. HSA always scared me in the past and we didn’t get good information on it. This was a great asset and made me understand how it can save me money in my situation.”Back to top
