In Brief

The NHEA assists household employers to obtain access to low-cost solutions for household employment benefits.

Member Benefits

Members have the option to acquire a SIMPLE 401(k) plan to provide your household employee with retirement benefits. This type of plan is very appropriate for households employing domestic workers, with many options for tax savings, employer contributions, and self-direction of investments.

To participate in NHEA benefit programs for your employees, you need to be an NHEA member and a client of our approved payroll provider, GTM Payroll Services.
