Healthcare FSA

  • Can I change my election if I don't use up all my FSA funds before end of the year?

    Sorry, you can only change you election if you meet any of these special circumstances, which are determined by the IRS:

    • A change in marital status (such as marriage, divorce or death of your spouse)
    • A change in the number of your dependents (such as birth or adoption of a child, or death of a dependent)
    • A change in employment status of you, your spouse, or dependent
    • An event that causes your dependent to satisfy or cease to satisfy an eligibility requirement for a particular benefit
    • A change in residence of you, your spouse, or dependent
    • A change in cost in coverage

    If you believe you qualify for a change of your election, please contact your employer. And if your employer offers carryover, don't forget you can carry over up to $500 of unused funds into the next plan year, so you won't lose them, even if you don't spend them in the first year.
