Plan Administrator: Infinisource Benefit Services
Section 125 of the Internal Revenue Code allows for the establishment of individual non-taxable accounts to pay for expenses associated with certain types of health and dependent care expenses.
This benefit offers employees the opportunity to have money deducted from payroll on a pre-tax basis for reimbursement of eligible medical, dental, vision, and/or daycare expenses.
Participation in the Flexible Spending Account and/or Dependent Care Expense Account is optional and available for benefits-eligible classified, management, faculty and part-time faculty employees. Enrollment in Section 125 is offered on a calendar year basis for qualified health care and dependent care expenses incurred between January and December each plan year. Employees must re-enroll each plan year to participate in Section 125. Human Resources will facilitate an open enrollment process for Section 125 each year, typically mid-October to mid-November.
A new enrollment process must be completed each calendar an employee wishes to participate in the plan. Enrollment does not roll over from one year to the next.
The election choice(s) made for Section 125 cannot be changed during the year except in the following circumstances: change in family status (marriage, divorce, death, birth or adoption); and/or change in FTE or employment status of employee or spouse. If one of these exceptions occur, please contact Human Resources within 60 days.
It is an IRS "use it or lose it" program, so unused dollars are not refunded to the employee.
Medical Insurance Premium Account
Expenses used to pay the group health insurance premiums not paid by employer (e.g. portion of premium that is deducted from your pay). Exception: The IRS will charge taxes on the portion of the premium that is used to pay for a domestic partner and a domestic partner's dependent children's coverage.
Health Care Expense Account (Flexible Spending Account)
Expenses incurred by the employee, spouse, or IRS dependent children that are not covered under a medical, dental, or vision plan. Examples: co-pay, co-insurance, deductible.
Upon election of the Section 125 FSA, eligible expenses can be paid using the Infinisource provided Benefits Card, or reimbursed by submitting a claim reimbursement request through the Infinisource Portal or the iFlex by Infinisource smartphone app. Reimbursement will be made by check or direct deposit.
Dependent Care Expense Account
Expenses relating to dependent care that enable the employee to work. Examples: daycare, summer camps, after school care. Claim reimbursement requests should be made through the Infinisource Portal or the iFlex by Infinisource smartphone app. Reimbursement will be made by check or direct deposit.

All reimbursement claims must be received by March 31 for any expenses incurred during the previous calendar year. Any remaining balance(s) from the previous calendar year will not be refunded to the employee after March 31.
