How to use WorkPerks

With WorkPerks, you can offer employees a monthly, quarterly, or annual allowance for the perk categories you choose to offer. Employees then choose the expenses they want to use their allowance on and submit proof of purchase. Once you approve their expenses, you’ll reimburse them up to their allowance amount.

Here's a breakdown of the process:

Step 1: Create a PeopleKeep account and design your benefit

To get started, you’ll create an account for your organization and design your benefit. You’ll have complete control over your benefit start date, allowance amounts, which perks you’d like to offer, and more. 

  • Choose a benefit start date
  • Choose your perks
  • Create optional employee classes, such as salaried, full-time, hourly, etc.
  • Offer one allowance for all of your perks or separate allowances for each class

Step 2: Add your people and launch your benefits

Next, you’ll invite your employees to participate in WorkPerks. Once invited, employees will receive an email with the details about their new benefit and how it works.

Step 3: Employees make purchases and request reimbursement

After an employee is enrolled in the benefit, they can make out-of-pocket purchases on the expenses that they choose. After making eligible purchases, employees submit a receipt or invoice* depending on the expense type. 


Step 4: Reimburse your employees

Once the expense is submitted, you can review it and approve or reject the amount. You’ll then reimburse your employees through payroll, cash, or check. 

*Medical expenses that fall under IRS Publication 502 don’t require proof of purchase as doing so would change reimbursement rules related to stipends and create requirements for employers related to HIPAA, ERISA, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and more.

Can employees choose where they spend their allowance?

Yes! Unlike other employee benefits solutions, your employees aren’t limited to a set vendor marketplace. Employees can make purchases from anywhere. As long as the expense itself is eligible for reimbursement under your benefit design, your employees have complete freedom to purchase from the vendors that work best for them.

Does PeopleKeep have hidden fees?

We don’t believe in hidden fees at PeopleKeep. The only charges that will show up on your invoices are the one-time setup fee when you first purchase a plan, the monthly base fee, and the monthly per-employee fee.

What payment methods does PeopleKeep accept?

We accept credit card and ACH payments.

Can I offer both WorkPerks and an HRA through PeopleKeep?

Yes! WorkPerks can be offered together with any of our HRA products or as standalone benefits. So whether you only want to offer WorkPerks, or want to offer them alongside an HRA, PeopleKeep can help.

Will PeopleKeep’s stipends work for my organization?

Yes, employee stipends work with organizations of all sizes. You can customize your benefits based on the needs of your employees and your budget. Our platform is much easier to use than managing your stipends with a spreadsheet!

How many stipends can I create?

You can create as many different types of stipends as you need. You can choose from pre-defined categories such as health, wellness, remote work, professional development and training, and commuter and transportation. You can also create any custom stipend categories that you choose!

How can PeopleKeep ensure IRS tax compliance?

Most of the perks offered through WorkPerks are considered taxable income for your employees. However, you can work with your tax advisor to determine which perks are tax-advantaged. No matter how you choose to design your benefit, WorkPerks keeps track of every receipt that’s uploaded and can serve as an accountable plan. This helps prepare you in case of an audit. For a complete list of tax-advantaged fringe benefits, you can reference IRS Publication 15-B.
