Employee Benefits

Flexible Benefits - Overview

Since the Flexible Benefits Program has tax advantages, there are tax laws and Internal Revenue Service regulations governing how the program operates. For more detailed information or clarification, see your agency's Benefits Administrator.

Open Enrollment

The Open Enrollment period for the Flexible Reimbursement Accounts will occurs each spring. During this period, eligible employees are allowed to enroll in one or both Flexible Reimbursement Accounts (FRA). Enrollment in a Flexible Reimbursement Account is effective July 1 and ends on June 30 of each year.

Any decision you make regarding your Flexible Benefits accounts, such as enrolling, ending participation, or changing your contribution amounts, is called an election. You must make an election each plan year to participate in the Flexible Reimbursement Account(s).

To make your election(s) during the spring for enrollment in the reimbursement account(s), use EmployeeDirect or complete the FRA section of the Eligibility and Active Enrollment Form for Employees and submit it to your agency's Benefits Administrator. After the close of the election period, no changes can be made, unless the employee experiences an event that would allow a mid-year election change. (See Enrolling and Making Changes).
