Flexible Spending Accounts
IMPORTANT FLEXIBLE SPENDING INFORMATION FOR 2013
Effective January 1, 2013, health care reform legislation limits the amount you can contribute to your healthcare flexible spending account to $2,500. The maximum contribution to your dependent care account remains at $5,000 per household.
The flex spending enrollment will only be accepted online. This includes healthcare, dependent care, pre-tax transit and pre-tax commuter parking. Your healthcare and dependent care elections from 2012 will not rollover to 2013. Transit and parking deductions do not require a new enrollment as those elections will rollover to 2013.
