Flexible Spending Accounts

 

Nearly 200 Union employees utilize Flexible Spending Accounts.  Paper statements are mailed out quarterly for both the Health Care Flexible Spending account and the Dependent Care Flexible Spending account so employees with both accounts will receive two statements.  Employees using the Health Care Flexible Spending account have until March 15 of each year to incur claims and until March 31 of each year to submit their claims for reimbursement.  Employees using the Dependent Care Flexible Spending account have until December 31 to incur claims and until March 31 to submit claims for reimbursement.  Reimbursements are processed upon receipt of the Health/Dependent Care Reimbursement Account Claim Form.  Remember, re-enrollment each calendar year is not automatic.  If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Joanne Herrick at x6105 or Human Resources at x6108.
