​Health Care Flexible Spending Account

Health Care FSAs provide tax savings on your out-of-pocket health expenses.

Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account

The Dependent Care FSA is a welcome money saver for today’s working parents. It allows you to set aside pre-tax money for eligible dependent day care expenses so you can work.

​HSA Reminder

A health savings account (HSA) is available to an eligible individual who has high deductible health coverage as long as the individual has no other impermissible health coverage. A general purpose FSA is impermissible and renders an individual ineligible to make contributions to an HSA even when it’s their spouse enrolled in a general purpose FSA. The State System does not offer an HSA plan but if your spouse is enrolled in an HSA plan offered by their employer, this may impact your FSA enrollment.

Changing FSA Elections

​Within 60 days of a qualifying event​, you must submit a Change in Status/Election Form​ and supporting documentation to your employer. Upon the approval of your election change request, your existing FSA(s) elections will be stopped or modified (as appropriate). Other events, such as change in child care expenses, may qualify to change your FSA election amount.
