A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) allows an employee to pay for eligible out-of-pocket medical and/or dependent care expenses with tax-free dollars. At the time of hire or during each open enrollment period, the employee must elect an annual amount to contribute to the FSA account. The amount selected will be deducted from the employee's paychecks on a pre-tax basis throughout the year. When an eligible expense is incurred, a claim form and receipt documentation is submitted to the People First Service Center for reimbursement from the FSA account.
FSAs have a "use it or lose it" policy, which means the employee will forfeit any amounts unused and not reimbursed for services received during the Plan year.
