Withhold pre-taxed dollars from your paycheck to pay for health related expenses and dependent care expenses. The new annual contribution limits are:
$5,000 dependent care account
$2,500 medical spending account
* You must re-enroll in this plan each year.
Open enrollment for flexible spending accounts is in May for the plan July 1st 2017 - June 30th 2017. Employees will receive advanced notification with the dates of open enrollment period.
If interested, employees must enroll in a flexible spending account during open enrollment – unless you’re new to the Town of Canton / Canton Public Schools or experience a change in family status. Please contact your Human Resources Administrator at any time throughout the year if you think you have a change in family status that may meet the criteria of a qualifying event.
This benefit is available to active employees only.
