Flexible Spending Account Changes

Posted 4/21/20 (Tue)

There are two important changes impacting Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) if you participate in the NDPERS FlexComp Plan as a result of COVID-19.

2019 Claim Submission Deadline Extended to June 30, 2020

The deadline to submit your 2019 Flexible Spending Account (FSA) claims will be extended until June 30, 2020. This deadline extension provides NDPERS members who have remaining funds in their 2019 Medical and Dependent Care FSAs with more flexibility during this unprecedented season.

You can submit your FSA claims with ASIFlex in a variety of ways:

The claim expense must have been incurred by the end of the 2019 grace period, which ended on March 15, 2020.

Change in Medical FSA Item Eligibility
