Flexible Spending Account An FSA is a program that allows employees to pay for certain medical, dental, vision, and dependent child care related expenses with pre-tax dollars. Employees like Flexible Spending Accounts because they can pay for out of pocket expenses with pre-tax dollars, giving you more take-home pay. You save money by reducing your Federal, FICA, and most State Income Tax (excluding N.J.). IT IS NOT AN INSURANCE POLICY.
IS THERE ANY RISK ? Revocation of Election: A Participant can not make any changes to his or her Pre-Tax election(s) under the plan except for election changes which are permitted within the IRS rules (i.e. marriage, death, birth of a child, divorce, loss of coverage). Use-It-Or-Lose-It Rule: If a Flexible Spending participant does not utilize their entire Unreimbursed Medical and/or Unreimbursed Dependent Care annual election(s) within the plan year and submit within the 90 day Run Out Period, the unclaimed portion of that election will be forfeited.
The new IRS $500 FSA Rollover!! On October 31, 2013, the IRS made an exciting change that affects Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)! They modified the “use it, or lose it” rule which required any leftover balance in a health FSA to be forfeited at the end of the plan year. The new plan allows you to carry over up to $500 of your unused health FSA balance at the end of the plan year, so you no longer have the risk of losing your set-aside money. What do you need to do now? Decide how much you want to elect for Keep in mind that any unused funds from 2015 will be rolled over into the 2016 plan year to a maximum rollover of $500. Also keep in mind that the carryover will not impact your election limit for the 2016 plan year. For example, if you choose to elect the maximum of $2,550 for 2016, plus any carryover from 2015 (up to $500), you could start off the 2016 plan year with a balance of as much as $3,050.

FSA Dependent Care You can use a Dependent Care Spending Account only if you pay dependent day care expenses to be able to work. Your day care services can take place either inside or outside of your home. If you are married, your spouse must also work, go to school full time, or be incapable of self-care for you to be eligible. Only (a) dependents under the age of thirteen or (b) dependent adults or children thirteen years or older who are mentally or physically incapable of self-care are covered. You cannot claim expenses if the service provider is your child or stepchild and are under age 19 or if you claim the service provider as a dependent for Federal income tax purposes. To be reimbursed, you must include the facility’s name, address, and tax identification number or the Social Security number of the individual providing the dependent day care service. Maximum Dependent Care Contribution Limit: $5,000 per year
