  • Flexible Spending issues Washington

    Currently, I have participate in my companies Flexible Spending plan. They take this money out of my check every two weeks. After they deduct the money from my check it takes them on average another two weeks to send the money to the FSA plan administrator. Is this legal?

    If I was not participating in the FSA plan, they would have owed me the money on my regular paycheck. I donít know how far to press this issue. I talked to my HR, and she said itís a payroll problem. It wouldnít be inconvenient if this was a Medical FSA account where I could spend money without having the balance available. However, itís a dependent care account, and I can only get reimbursed for what has actually been deposited at the plan administrator.

    Yes, that is legal.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
