Flexible Spending Accounts

Accounts Overview

There are two types of Flexible Spending Accounts: Health Care and Dependent Care. The accounts are separate, but similar in that they allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay eligible health and dependent care expenses that other benefit plans don't cover.

The accounts can help you pay for expenses that are predictable. They may offer savings, but you should plan carefully.

Amounts over $640 left in either account at the end of the plan year (July 1 - June 30) are forfeited due to IRS Regulations.

How the accounts work

  1. Select the Flexible and/or Dependent Care Accounts during open enrollment.
  2. Authorize payroll deductions before income and employment taxes are withheld.
  3. When you have eligible expenses, file your claims for reimbursement from the tax free money you’ve set aside.

Although the two accounts are similar, they are different. Careful planning of the dollar amounts deposited into your accounts is encouraged. For more specific details, please visit www.asiflex.comlinks to external site.
