2019 FSA Open Enrollment

business-583846.jpg

Open Enrollment for the 2019 Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Plans begins on November 5th and ends on November 16, 2018. If you want an FSA in 2019, you must enroll before the deadline even if you’re currently participating.

FSA elections are made on a year-to-year basis. The amount you choose for the year is divided by the number of paychecks in your pay cycle and deducted from each paycheck on a pre-tax basis. Your deduction may increase at the end of the year to make up for any unpaid hiatus weeks. Any elections made during Open Enrollment are effective and irrevocable as of January 1, 2019 (unless you have a qualified change in status and make a corresponding election within 30 days). And, remember to be conservative in your election because if you don’t use it, you lose it.

  • 2019 FSA Health Care Account annual maximum increased to $2,650 from $2,600.

  • 2019 FSA Dependent Care Account annual maximum remains at $5,000. If you're a highly compensated employee (you received compensation in 2018 in excess of $120,000), your election will be capped at $1,000).
