Flexible Spending Accounts
Flexible Spending Account (FSA) plans allow you to pay for certain unreimbursed healthcare and dependent care expenses with pre-tax dollars. For many participants, the FSA plan provides a better tax benefit than is available to an individual taxpayer. The unique tax benefits of the FSA plan can be derived only from participation in an employer-sponsored program.
NOTE: The Internal Revenue Service requires that any unused funds in participant accounts at plan year-end be forfeited. Therefore, it is very important that you estimate your contributions carefully.
