Can I change my FSA election amount?

Written by Aimee Reynard

Flexible spending account (FSA) elections are irrevocable and cannot be changed during the period of coverage unless there is a permitted change in election event

Examples of these events are:

  • A change in marital status (i.e., marriage, divorce, or death of your spouse)
  • A change in your number of dependents (i.e., birth or adoption of a child, or death of a dependent)
  • A change in employment status for you, your spouse, or dependent that affects eligibility
  • An event that causes your dependent to satisfy or cease to satisfy an eligibility requirement
  • A change in residence for you, your spouse, or dependent
  • A change in cost or coverage
  • HIPAA special enrollment rights
  • Judgment, decree, or order
  • Medicare or Medicaid entitlement
  • FMLA leaves of absence

Refer to your plan documents for specific information on what may constitute a qualifying event under your benefit plan.
