Flexible Spending Accounts

  • Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), governed by the IRS code, allow employees to have income withheld from their paychecks before taxes for eventual reimbursement of certain medical and dependent care expenses. 

    FSAs are available to full-time, permanent employees, including temporary faculty members employed for a one-academic-year contract, and permanent part-time employees, including temporary faculty members employed for a one-academic year-contract who work 50 percent of the time.
