Change in Status Request Forms
In December 2020, the IRS issued revised rules for FSAs under the Consolidated Appropriations Act. This notice provides increased flexibility for 2021 Health Care FSA and Dependent Care FSA participants to make midyear changes during the 2021 calendar year.
- You may only increase or decrease your 2021 annual election once during the plan year without a corresponding change in status event.
- Changes in deduction amounts will be effective the first day of the month following the receipt of the form. The final deadline for submitting changes to your 2021 FSA deduction amounts is November 2021 with the change effective for December 2021 paychecks.
- Please note that decreases cannot be less than amounts for which you have already received reimbursement from the plan.
- Unfortunately, the IRS does not permit a refund of pre-tax dollars that are contributed to an FSA.
To change your FSA contributions, complete and return a Request for Change in Status form:
- Dependent Care Provider's Identification and Certification
- PayFlex Health Care and Dependent Care FSA Claim Form
