Take a Closer Look at Your Payroll Deductions
Many employees have a compensation package that probably results in payroll deductions to help cover the costs. If you’re paying for various insurance packages like dental, life, medical and long-term disability, maybe you could take a closer look at the insurance plans to see if you can make any changes to them.
Sometimes a higher deductible plan will result in lower premiums -- you will reduce the amount you pay out of your paycheck for the policy. If you are mostly healthy, you might find decreasing the amount of coverage or increasing your deductible is a possibility for increasing your pay -- just make sure you don’t make drastic changes that will leave you unprotected in the event you need to use your insurance policies.
