Flexible Spending Accounts

All full-time faculty, full-time, regular and full-time term staff members are eligible to participate. Eligibility commences the first of the month following the faculty/staff member's employment date.

The Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) allow the faculty/staff member to pay certain health care and dependent care expenses with tax-free money. Each benefits plan year the faculty/staff member can put money into an FSA through pre-tax payroll contributions. This money can be used to reimburse the faculty/staff member for the eligible out-of-pocket expenses incurred during the plan year. The University offers for a Health Care FSA and a Dependent Care FSA.

Effective January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014.
