10/04/2019 Flexible Spending Account Open Enrollment 2020 Begins Oct. 7, 2019

The 2020 open enrollment period for the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) will run from Monday, October 7 through Friday, November 8, 2019 ending at 10:00 pm and the deadline is strictly enforced. Please note the deadline time has changed from previous years, when the enrollment period ended at midnight.

FSA can assist you in saving money to pay for necessary health or dependent care expenses because money set aside is not subject to federal, state or social security taxes. Also available is the adoption advantage account to save pre-tax money for eligible adoption expenses.

If you are enrolled in the 2019 FSA program, your enrollment will not carry over into 2020, and you must re-enroll if you wish to use the 2020 benefit. Visit the FSA website for plan details and enrollment guidelines or call Flex Benefit Management Company (FBMC) at 800-358-7202 for assistance.
