Grace Period for Flexible Spending Accounts
The Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM) has announced a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Grace Period for the 7/1/2019 – 6/30/2020 plan year. The one-time Grace Period to the 2019-2020 FSA Plans will extend the period to incur claims until October 31, 2020. State employees who are enrolled in the Heath FSA or the Dependent Care FSA on June 30, 2020 and have a balance remaining may continue using those funds to file for claims incurred from July 1, 2020 through October 31, 2020. All claims must be submitted by November 30, 2020 in order to be eligible for reimbursement under the Grace Period.
