43 Flexible Spending Account / Dependent Care Account Tri-Star Systems
44 Flexible Spending Accounts Program Highlights A great way to plan ahead and save money over the course of the year is to participate in the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) program. These accounts allow you to redirect a portion of your salary on a pre-tax basis into reimbursement accounts. Money from these accounts is then used to pay medical expenses, which are not covered by your medical plan.Services provided by Tri-Star Systems.
45 Flexible Spending Accounts Program Highlights Two ways to maximize your pre-tax savings:Health Care Reimbursement Account:This account reimburses you for eligible health care expenses not covered by insurance. The maximum amount you can contribute to this account is $2,400.Dependent Care Reimbursement Account:Through regular payroll deductions, you can set aside part of your income to pay for daycare expenses for eligible children and adults. Qualified expenses for reimbursement include adult and child daycare centers, preschools and before/after school care.Employees can make up to $5,000 ($2,500 for married couples filing separately) a year in pre-tax contributions to a dependent care FSA
46 Flexible Spending Accounts Program Highlights Important rules:You are responsible for filing claims for reimbursement.Carefully review your estimated expenses, as any funds remaining in the account at the end of the year are forfeited.The money you contribute to each account for the plan year can only be used for eligible expenses you incur during the year.You must enroll or waive for the 2010 plan year via the Tri-Star Systems web site.
