Cell Phone Allowance

Assist your team with the cost of their mobile phone and network costs.

What are Cell Phone Allowances?

Offering a mobile phone allowance as an employee benefit is a great way to support your employees with everyday costs. An employer funded mobile phone allowance can go towards data and network costs, or even the cost of the device.

Why should you offer a cell phone allowance?

A mobile phone allowance comes with advantages to both you and your team — here’s how…

Benefits to employees:

  • financial support for everyday costs = more money in their pocket to spend on other things! 

Benefits to you:

  • happier employees
  • higher employee retention
  • attract talent
  • zero cost if done via salary sacrifice

Why offer a cell phone allowance through Ben?

Ben makes offering a mobile phone allowance easy. You start by working with a benefits consultant to help you determine an appropriate allowance amount and any restrictions you want to implement, including only being spendable on certain retail categories.

Employees are then given a virtual or physical card that they can use towards the cost of their mobile phone. Receipts are uploaded straight to Ben, and with our consolidated reporting you can easily track usage and balances across your team.

The Ben platform

Ben is easily the most engaged initiative we’ve ever had. It gets everything to everyone in different locations, and I can’t even tell you how much time it’s saved us.
