Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) for 2021 and beyond
Because we are transitioning benefit renewals to a fiscal plan year (July 1 to June 30), current FSA election amounts have been pro-rated to reflect a short plan period from Jan 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021. At the end of this period, participants will have a 90-day window to submit final claims with a date of service incurred during the plan period. Up to $550 is eligible to roll-over to the new plan period and will be available from July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022. Participants will have another opportunity in the spring of 2021 to elect FSA amounts for the next fiscal plan year. Funds elected for the 2020-21 fiscal plan year will be available throughout the entire fiscal year.
