Here is info from my most recent pay. I have benefits for my wife and myself. I got all of the extras I needed. We are both in our 50s and are non smokers. The HSA amount is what I choose to put in. That is my money, it just goes from one of my pockets to the other. Hope this helps.


There are other options I did not choose. I chose what's best for us.

We are about to start our open enrollment for next year. We'll see what if any changes there are.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

An HSA is simply a savings account that allows putting aside pre tax money to cover deductibles or even inexpensive procedures.

HSA is a Health Savings Account. You put in pre tax money and can use it for your medical expenses. If you don't use it, at 60 something, it becomes a retirement account. You get a debit card to use for the account. It's your money, if you leave the company you take it with you. CFI adds about $20 per week to ours.
