A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) allows you to use before-tax dollars to pay for eligible out-of-pocket expenses.
Mount Holyoke College has established two types of flexible spending accounts:
Health Care Spending Account:
- Contributions of a minimum of $120 to a maximum of $2700.
- Can be used to pay for eligible health care expenses (including dental expenses).
Dependent Care Spending Account:
- Contributions of a minimum of $120 to a maximum of $5,000
- Can be used to pay for eligible dependent care expenses.
Flexible spending dollars are deducted during the calendar year (January - December).
As permitted by the IRS, Mount Holyoke College offers an additional 'grace period' of 2 1/2 months in which a participant could use flexible spending dollars from the previous year to pay for expenses.
Please feel free to contact the HR Benefits department if you have any questions.
