Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)

arrow  NEW HIRES

Eligible employees can enroll through Self-Service anytime during the first 31 days of employment. View Step-by-Step Enrollment Instructions for help in navigating this process.  If you do not enroll in the FSA during your first 31 days of employment, your next opportunity to enroll will be during Emory's regular annual enrollment in the fall.

Your new hire election is for 6 months only (July - December). If you would like to have a Flexible Spending Account for the following calendar year, there will be an opportunity to make this election during Emory's regular annual enrollment in the fall. The FSA election is the ONLY benefit election you will make in the fall annual enrollment.


Medical House Staff members are provided an opportunity to make changes to their FSA elections each year during the regular annual enrollment which is held in the fall. Mid-year enrollments can only be completed if you experience a Family Status Change. Family Status Change enrollments must be completed within 31 days of the event.

Note: The IRS requires a new election annually to re-enroll in the Healthcare or Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). Previous year enrollments do not carry forward into a new plan year.
