How do I sign up for a Flexible Spending Account (FSA)?
The County offers two types of flexible spending accounts (FSAs): the Medical Reimbursement Account and the Dependent Care Reimbursement account. You can only sign up for these accounts when you are a new employee or during Open Enrollment. You have to re-enroll for the FSAs every year – your contributions do not automatically roll over.
If you enrolled as a:
- New Hire – This benefit does not become effective until all new employee benefits take effect.
- Current employee during Open Enrollment – This benefit becomes effective on January 1st of the following plan year.
