Increase in Hours Affect on Health Care Flexible Spending Account


Question: I have recently had a job change and it was an increase in hours. Can I change my Health Care Flexible Spending Account elections?

Answer: No. IRS rules do not allow changes to your Health Care Flexible Spending Account if your annual earnings increase due to a change in your appointment percentage or other job change and you remain eligible to participate in the university’s Health Care Flexible Spending Account.
