Looking Ahead to a New Plan Year

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) Updates and Reminders

Health Care FSA

If you have a Health Care Flexible Spending Account (HCFSA), you will be able to roll over up to $570 of all unused funds from the 2021-2022 plan year to the 2022-2023 plan year. All unused funds over the $570 limit will be forfeited.

You must incur all expenses between July 1, 2021, and June 30, 2022. Claims must be submitted by September 30, 2022. All rollover funds will be available in November.

Carefully consider your contribution for the new plan year.

Dependent Care FSA

You must use all available funds by the end of the plan year deadline or you will forfeit any remaining balance. You have until September 15 of the following plan year to incur expenses, and until September 30 of the following plan year to submit eligible claims. 

For example, if you enroll in a Dependent Care FSA during the 2022-2023 plan year, you’ll have until September 15, 2023 to incur expenses and until September 30, 2023 to submit eligible expenses for reimbursement.

Medical Rates 

There will be an increase to the medical plan rates. Most other plan rates will remain the same.


During Open Enrollment, you can make changes to your benefits coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via Workday@Penn. As a result of a Workday upgrade, the Benefits screens will have a new look starting mid-April.

Your Contributions

Your contributions for medical, dental, vision, and the flexible spending accounts are made with pre-tax dollars. You pay for employee and dependent life insurance with after-tax dollars. All contributions are taken from your paycheck in the month for which your benefits are effective. Your pay must support your contributions for the benefits elected. If that is not the case, then your enrollment cannot be processed.

Making Changes to Your Elections Outside of Open Enrollment

If you have a qualifying life event you may be eligible to make changes to your benefit elections outside of Open Enrollment. For more information visit the Qualifying Life Event Changes page.
