The cafeteria-style Benefit Plan is offered as allowed under Section 125 of the Internal Revenue Code, which allows employees the opportunity to pay for certain benefits with pretax dollars. Full-time employees participate either in the City of Fresno Employees Retirement System or the City of Fresno Fire and Police Retirement System and do not contribute to Social Security.
