ANNUAL ENROLLMENT: April 4 – May 2, 2018

During the GIC’s spring 2018 Annual Enrollment period, state employees can enroll in FSA benefits for the 12-month fiscal year of July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019. It is important to consider your election carefully. Because the IRS has a strict “use-it-or-lose it” rule, which means that money left in a pre-tax account plan at the end of a plan year is forfeited.

New State Employees and Change in Status

New state employees and employees who have a qualifying status change during the year may enroll for partial-year benefits. For HCSA, new hire benefits begin at the same time as other GIC benefits. For DCAP, coverage begins on the first day of employment.

2½-Month Grace Period

For the 2019 fiscal year, you have until September 15, 2019 to incur claims and until October 15, 2019 to submit claims.

Enrollment

Participants must re-enroll online each Annual Enrollment period, and give the enrollment confirmation page to their payroll coordinator. New participants, including those enrolling due to a qualifying status change, must complete and return the FSA enrollment and status change forms to their payroll coordinator.
