Flexible Spending Account Administrator
Flores and Associates
Flores and Associates offers advantages in how employees can view as well as manage their Medical and Dependent Care flexible spending accounts (FSAs). Notifications are sent via email and/or via mail regarding claims, balances, and if receipts are needed for approval of transactions.
The annual maximum contribution amount for the Medical FSA effective January 1, 2018 will be $2,650. This limit is per participant and not per household. Therefore, if an employee and their legal spouse both participate in their respective employer’s FSA plans, they may have a combined household pre-tax contribution of $5,300 for the taxable year but neither may contribute more than the $2,650 per person pre-tax limit (e.g. one cannot contribute $2,300 and the other contribute $3,000). The annual maximum contribution amount for Dependent Care FSA is $5,000.

Flexible Spending Account Qualified Expenses Guide
Flexible Spending Account Grace Period
The grace period begins January 1st and ends March 15th following completion of the calendar year. The grace period provides more time to spend the funds in the flexible spending account. Any unused amounts not submitted for reimbursement by March 31st will be forfeited. Eligible expenses incurred during the grace period (January 1st through March 15th) and approved for reimbursement will be paid first from available amounts that were remaining on December 31st of the previous year and then paid from any available amounts for the current Plan Year.
Example: If you elected $1,000.00 for medical expenses for Plan Year 2017 and have a balance of $200.00 on December 31, 2017, you can submit qualified expenses incurred between January 1, 2018 and March 15, 2018 for reimbursement of the remaining balance.
