What is the FSA Start Date for New Hires?
When a new employee with a mid-month hire date enrolls in an FSA within 30 days of that date, their FSA will start on the first of the month following their hire date. New hires with a hire date of the first or last date of the month also have 30 days to enroll, but their FSA's start date will depend on the actual hire date.
- An employee hired on January 1st will have until January 31st to complete the FSA enrollment flow. Once the employee completes enrollment in Zenefits, they will have a plan effective date of January 1st.
- An employee hired on January 31st will have until March 1st to complete the FSA enrollment flow. Once the employee completes enrollment, they will have a plan effective date of February 1st.
