Dear Valued Employee:
When you enroll in a health flexible spending account (FSA), deductions come out of your paycheck before most withholding taxes are computed, reducing your taxable income and increasing your take-home pay!
Your FSA program has a built-in grace period, which allows you to incur expenses until March 15 that can be reimbursed from your previous year’s funds.
This is great news for you because:
- You can worry less about forfeiting unused funds at the end of the calendar year!
- During the grace period, you can combine funds from the previous year and the current year for health expenses that occur prior to March 15.
Start Small. You don't have to invest a lot. Even if you only contribute $250 annually, you'll be surprised at how quickly your medical expenses add up and how much you can save.
Budgeting Made Simple. Regular payroll deductions help you spread out medical, dental, vision, orthodontia, and dependent care expenses over the year.
Enroll. You can enroll on our participant website at https://benefits.paychex.com or by phone at 877-244-1771. You can also contact your employer to obtain a paper form.

If you have questions about this option or other changes to your plan, please consult your employer.
