Learn how MI Tri-Share can benefit you.

Lower your child care costs by 66%

Through MI Tri-Share, the cost of child care is shared equally by you, your employer and the State of Michigan — a three-way split. That means you only pay one-third of child care for your children. Plus, you get to choose which child care provider you prefer.

One less check to write each month

Your employer may deduct your child care costs from your paycheck and then make payments directly to your child care provider. Which means you can just focus on your family, and enjoy saving 66% on you child care costs.
