NEW YORK, Feb. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- FSA Administrators, Clarity Benefit Solutions, shares tips for increasing enrollmentnumbers for Flexible Spending Accounts.
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) are a tool that employees can use to pay for eligible medical and dental expenses, or medical equipment such as crutches. When companies have low FSA enrollment numbers,
Highlight the Benefits. There are some important benefits of FSAs that your employees might not know; educating them might make the difference in their decision to enroll. Here are some benefits to regularly remind employees of:
Give Them Safety Nets. Remind employees about the carryover and grace periods associated with FSAs. People can carry up to $500 over to the next year, so there is no risk of losing money if the entire fund isn't used. Or, there is a grace period that extends past the plan end date. Individuals have a little over two months from the end date to use their funds from that year.
Communicate Often. The biggest reason why employees don't enroll in an FSA is for lack of understanding of the benefits and how the account works. Continually provide them tips, updates, and resources that steadily increase their knowledge and remind them of the benefits. It's important to communicate often, not just in the weeks leading up to enrollment. This gives people time to fully understand FSAs and ask any questions they may have.
