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 three benefits:
- The Health Care Spending Account (HSCA) that lets you set aside any amount from $100 up to $2,700 for the 2020 tax 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) that allows your family to set aside up to $5,000 in pre-tax salary for eligible child care, elder care or disabled dependent care expenses that are necessary for you and your spouse, if married, to work
- The Adoption Advantage Account lets you pay for expenses related to the adoption of an eligible child with pre-tax dollars.
Apply online through an easy paperless application process. It's easy to enroll in the FSA. Just submit your application for enrollment in either or all three benefits online at www.flexspend.ny.gov.
If you do not have access to the internet, apply by telephone at 1-800-358-7202.
You will need your NYS EMPLID number, which is located on your pay stub, to complete your application. You will also need your DEPT ID, which is 28270.
If you are enrolled for the 2019 plan year, you must re-enroll if you wish to continue your enrollment in 2020.
