If you are a Flexible Spending Account participant, now is a good time to review your health care and dependent care account balance(s) online!
Here's how to check your account balance(s):
1) Go to www.yale.edu/portal
2) On the CAS screen, login using your Yale NetID and password
3) Under My Yale, click on My Benefits
4) Within My Benefits, click on Manage My Spending Accounts
In the same location, you will find a list of eligible expenses as well as details regarding the documentation you will need to submit with your claim(s) to Your Spending Account™ (YSA).
Every penny counts---spend your 2010 account balance(s) by March 15, 2011
We want you to get the most out of your FSA benefits! For 2010, you have until March 15, 2011 to incur eligible expenses and through April 30, 2011 to submit your receipts for those expenses. Your flexible spending benefit has a "use it or lose it" rule---after March 15, you will forfeit any remaining balance.
Re-enroll in FSA during upcoming annual enrollment - December 2010
Enrollment in a flexible spending account is not automatic. If you would like to take advantage of Yale's flexible spending benefit in 2011, you will need to re-enroll during this year’s annual enrollment in December so be on the look out for more information in the coming weeks.
