Employee FSA Enrollment Timelines

Your deadline to enroll in a FSA is dependent on what type of enrollment is occurring. 


New Company FSA Plan or  FSA Open Enrollment 

When your company sets up a new company FSA plan (initial FSA enrollment) or renews an existing plan (open FSA enrollment), you have until the 25th of the same month to set up your individual FSA to start on the 1st of the following month. If you enroll after the 25th, your FSA will start on the 1st of the month after next. Learn more.

New Hire FSA Enrollment 

When you get hired at a company with an existing FSA plan, you'll need to complete enrollment for your FSA within 30 days from your hire date. Your FSA start date will depend on your hire date. If you do not meet this deadline, you will need to wait until your company's next FSA renewal period or enroll if you experience a Qualifying Life Event.

Qualifying Life Event Enrollments

Employees have 30 days from their Qualifying Life Event to enroll in an FSA. This enrollment will be effective the first of the month following the QLE. Employees must reach out to Customer Care in order to complete this request.
