Mid Year Benefits Checkup!
As the summer fun winds down, it is a good time to do mid-year benefits check up. With proper research and planning, you can coordinate benefits and maximize funds to cover medical expenses. For example, many of you have a Flexible Savings Account (FSA) and it is common for some employees to overlook the available balance leading to rushed expense decisions at the end of the year. For those of you who also have dental insurance benefits, this mid year review can help you coordinate the maximum benefit fund balance available with the funds from your FSA to help you cover expensive dental care. Please remember that each program has specific rules. To assist you with your research and planning tasks, we have included programs details and information for both programs on our website. If you don’t have an FSA account, learn more. The open enrollment for this benefit option is in November.
Our provider, Lifetime Benefits Solution has an excellent resource page with more information.
