Enrolling in an FSA
As a New Employee
Enroll online through MyU (My Benefits > Benefits Enrollment) within 30 days of your date of employment or your newly benefits-eligible job. Your Flexible Spending Account starts on the first day of the month following your first day in your new job.
During Open Enrollment
Every year during Open Enrollment (November 1-30), you can sign up for new benefits, including FSAs.
FSAs do not automatically renew from year-to-year, so if you’d like to continue an FSA for the next calendar year, just re-enroll online through MyU during Open Enrollment.
After a Change in Your Family
Having a major change in your family, such as getting married or having a baby, is another opportunity to enroll in an FSA. Contact Employee Benefits within 30 days of your family change.
