Flexible Spending Account (FSA) "Grace Period Claims"

FSA participants have the “grace period” of January 1 through March 15, 2007 to incur eligible expenses for reimbursement from their 2006 flexible spending accounts. These claims must be submitted to ADP no later than April 30, 2007 to avoid forfeiting that 2006 money.

Reminder, all flexible spending claims for reimbursement should be submitted directly to ADP, and not to the Yale Benefits Office.  ADP claim forms with detailed instructions may be found at http://www.yale.edu/hronline/benefits/benforms_claim.html.  Claims with the accompanying expense information can be sent to ADP either by U.S. mail or faxed toll free to the number listed on the claim form.  Any questions regarding participants’ FSA expense claims should be directed to ADP by calling their Participant Solution Center at 1-800-654-6695.

Newly hired employees and employees who experience an appropriate qualifying status change event may enroll in a health care flexible spending account or dependent care flexible spending account within 30 days from the date of employment or qualifying event.  Please direct interested employees to the Yale Benefits Office for FSA enrollment or to review an appropriate qualifying status event.  The 2007 FSA Election Form may be found at http://www.yale.edu/hronline/benefits/benforms_enroll.html
