Flexible Benefits - 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 Making Changes Outside of Open Enrollment).
During the Open Enrollment period, your FRA elections must fall within a certain range of contributions (See the Minimum and Maximum Contributions link for more details.)
