Flexible Spending Accounts (HFS Benefits)
Flexible Spending Accounts allow employees to pay for certain health and dependent care expenses with pre-taxed dollars, which means that taxable earnings are reduced so the employee pays less taxes on earnings and take home pay is increased. The maximum amount that can be set aside for health care expenses per calendar year is $2,500; and the maximum that can be set aside per calendar year for dependent care is $5,000; however, amounts may change based on IRS regulations. Employees wishing to participate in either of these plans must enroll / re-enroll each January 1. The City of Greenbelt pays all administrative costs.
