Flexible Spending Program

Put more money in your pocket with an FSA!

The Flexible Spending Program is available to County of Mendocino employees who are eligible for the Health Plan and have passed their initial employment probationary period. The Flexible Spending Program allows you to save money by using pre-tax dollars to pay for unreimbursed health and dependent care expenses. Many employees and their families are able to increase their take home pay by using this program. Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA's) help you save money by offering you the ability to set aside money on a pre-tax basis. The types of flexible spending accounts for which you can enroll, if eligible, are Health Care Spending Account and Dependent Care Spending Account.

Each year during Open Enrollment (typically held in a 30 day period between November and December) you have the opportunity to enroll in the Flexible Spending Program. You can fund your account with pre-tax salary contributions which are automatically withdrawn from your bi-weekly pay check based upon your election amount.

(*A Flexible Spending Enrollment Form & Salary Redirection Agreement are needed to sign up for an FSA)
