FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNTS
Please keep in mind, FSA Accounts have a “use it or lose it” rule, minus the rollover for the Health Care FSA. Therefore, you must predict your 2021 spending when electing this benefit. You cannot change it during the year once elected. Careful planning is required!
Health Care FSA
o The IRS has not increased the Health Care FSA maximum deferral for 2021; therefore, that will remain at $2,750.
o The rollover feature will increase from $500 to $550. This is effective with the 2020 plan year.
o Maximum deferral will remain at $5,000 per year.
For those enrolling in LVF’s medical plans, biometric screenings will not be conducted for plan year 2021 due to COVID-19. Those currently paying a surcharge will no longer be charged after the 12/24/2020 pay. LVF expects to resume the biometric screening in 2022, with consideration to the status of the public health crisis at that time.
