Flexible Spending Accounts

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), once known as pre-tax spending accounts, offered by the State Employee Group Insurance Program (SEGIP) can provide you with substantial tax savings by paying your health and dental plan premiums, eligible dependent care, medical, dental, and transportation expenses with pre-tax dollars.

But remember the IRS rule "use it or lose it". Because of the tax advantages of flexible spending accounts, any contributions to medical/dental and dependent care flexible spending accounts that remain unclaimed by the end of a year will be forfeited.
