Flexible Spending Account

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
  • $2,700 medical spending account

* You must re-enroll in this plan each year.

Enrollment Dates


Open enrollment for flexible spending accounts is in May for the plan July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020.  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.
