A Reimbursement Account is a benefit that your employer sponsors. It allows you to pay for certain expenses, using pre-tax dollars.
That means you save money while increasing your take-home pay.
Which account is yours?
The bottom line: Get more spendable income for paying bills—or for planning that much-needed vacation.
Your Benefits Card is a smart card. That means you can use it like a credit card for your eligible expenses. If you cannot use your Benefits Card for an eligible expense, you will need to fill out and submit a reimbursement request form.
It’s easy to sign up. Just follow the simple steps below. Please note that your employer will need to be contracted with us for you to enroll.
1. Contact your Human Resources (HR) or Employee Benefit department to get more information.
2. Use the expense worksheet to figure out how much you expect to spend during the year on eligible expenses. Please note:
a. The healthcare maximum is determined by your employer
b. The Dependent Care tax year maximum is $5,000 per family ($2,500 if married filing separately).
3. If your employer uses forms, complete their enrollment form and return it to them. Do not send it to BenefitHelp Solutions.
4. Your employer will automatically deduct the amount requested from your paycheck and send it to us to be deposited in your FSA account(s).
