Flexible Spending Account (FSA)

One-Time Mid-Year Election Change

 

 Note: This is not the annual open enrollment for the Flexible Spending Accounts for Plan Year 2021.

 

Announcement for All Eligible Employees; Administrators, Classified and Faculty (Full-Time and Part-Time)

 

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the IRS has announced several changes for employer-sponsored Flexible Spending Plans for 2020. Peralta Community College District has amended the plan to allow the following:

 

1)      For the 2020 Plan Year, employees can make changes to their election and modify, cancel, or enroll in without experiencing a status change event under the IRS rules. To change your election or start participating in the 2020 FSA Plan, please complete the Enrollment/Revision Form on pages 10-11 of the attached handbook. The form should be scanned and uploaded to the Pension Dynamics secure website https://secure.pensiondynamics.com/.

a.       For any increase or new enrollment, the change is retroactive back to the beginning of the plan year or the date you became eligible to enroll if later.

b.      The change cannot be less than the amount already dispersed for 2020 AND it cannot be less than the total contributions to date (as of 9/30/2020 paycheck). We will be accepting change forms between October 1st – October 12th, 2020 and the new deduction will be effective on the October 31st pay period.

 

2)      For those of you who participated in the 2019 FSA-Medical Plan (January 1, 2019 – December 31,2019) and who had a remaining balance, the deadline to submit any claims incurred in 2019 from either the Health or Daycare FSA has been extended to 12/31/2020. Please submit any claims through Pension Dynamics’ Website at (https://www.pensiondynamics.com/login

 

3)      The Health FSA maximum carryover limit has increased to $550 for the plan year ending 12/31/2020. No action is required, this change will be automatic.

 

If you do not want to make a change you do not need to do anything at this time.  If you do want to make changes the deadline is October 12, 2020.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to benefits@peralta.edu or benefits@pensiondynamics.com.
