Can I set different FSA contribution limits for different workers?
Zenefits does not support varying maximum FSA contribution limits for different workers. Everyone who enrolls in an FSA in Zenefits can contribute up to the IRS limits for Medical (see limits) or Dependent Care (see limits) FSAs.
Outside of Zenefits, employers may set a limit lower than the statutory limits. However, setting a different limit for different classifications of workers can be an issue. Reasonable classifications may be permissible, including, but not limited to:
- geographic area
- specified job categories
- or other bona fide business criteria. See Treasury Reg. Section 1 .410( b )-4.
Thank you for the feedback!
