Helping Your Employees Enroll
There are three ways your employees can enroll in your FSA plan:
To Enroll Online
Your employees have the opportunity to enroll, make contributions, and modify elections directly online.
For their convenience, they will not be required to re-enroll in the FSA plan each year. Once enrolled, they continue to participate in the plan until they choose to cease participation or modify election amounts during annual enrollment. If they do not submit a change, the annual election amount currently on file will be used for the following plan year. To enroll online, employees should:
- Access Paychex FSA Online. If you have not already registered, select Register for a New Account and follow the prompts.
- Log on by entering your username and password and selecting your security image.
- Select Flexible Spending Account.
- Follow the prompts and instructions to access your account and enroll.
