What FSA Accounts are Offered?

LACCD offers two types of accounts:

This benefit became effective on April 1, 2004. Therefore, for plan year 2004, your pre-tax contributions will be deducted over the seven months in the plan year (no deductions are made during the summer). However, for newly eligible employees, if you enroll in the plan after April 1, 2004, your contributions will be deducted over the remaining number of months in the plan year. The plan year will end on December 31. Subsequent plan years will begin January 1 and end December 31, and you must re-enroll each plan year.

Please note that the money you set aside in an FSA will reduce dollar-for-dollar the maximum amount of expense you can apply towards your Federal income tax return. Therefore, you should consult your tax advisor to determine which method works for you.
