Special Notice to those with Flexible Health Spending Accounts

This year we are adopting a carryover provision that will allow you to carry over a balance of up to $550 from 2020 to 2021. You will be able to use the  carry over funds towards 2021 expenses. This does NOT affect the amount you can contribute in 2021. More information will be shared with you directly if this affects you, but getting this information sooner may be helpful to guide your spending if you have a remaining balance in 2020.

Email with any questions.
