Please note: The IRS has decreased the amount that you can elect for the health care spending account from $5,000 to $2,500 effective January 1, 2013. The dependent care maximum remains at $5,000 for 2013.
A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) allows employees to use before-tax dollars to pay for eligible out-of-pocket expenses. Hampshire College has established two types of flexible spending accounts through Benefit Strategies.
Access your flexible spending dollars using the FlexExpress Visa Debit Card. No waiting for reimbursement; simply use your card to pay for qualified medical, dental, and dependent care expenses.
