Flex Spending Account 2024 - Open Enrollment Campaign
The 2024 open enrollment campaign for the New York State Flex Spending Account (FSA) will run from November 1, 2023 to December 11, 2023.
The Flex Spending Account (FSA) is a state employee benefit that saves you money by allowing you to pay for certain expenses with pre-tax dollars. Under this program, you can choose from three different benefits:
- The Health Care Spending Account (HCSA) lets you set aside any amount from $100 up to $3,200 for the 2024 plan year to pay for health care expenses that are not reimbursed by your health insurance or other benefit plan.
- The Dependent Care Advantage Account (DCAA) allows your family to set aside up to $5,000 in pre-tax dollars for eligible custodial childcare, elder care, or disabled dependent care expenses.
- The Adoption Advantage Account lets you pay for expenses related to the adoption of an eligible child with pre-tax dollars.
Who’s Eligible to Enroll in the FSA?
The HCSA and DCAA are open to New York State employees of Executive Branch state agencies, the State University of New York, the Legislature, and the Unifed Court System. Employees of the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, NYS Energy Research and Development Authority, New York Liquidation Bureau, and Environmental Facilities Corporation are also eligible to participate.
The deadline for 2024 enrollment is December 11, 2023 at 11:59 pm and is strictly enforced. Please be sure to enroll by December 11. If you are enrolled for the 2023 plan year, you must re-enroll to continue your benefits in 2024.
