Any UNO employee with a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) from WageWorks in 2020 is reminded to submit any claims with service dates from 2020 by the IRS deadline of Wednesday, March 31, 2021.
Eligible dates of service for anyone with a remaining balance in their account are Jan. 1, 2020 through Dec. 31, 2020.
Unused funds from a 2020 FSA for an employee who signed up for a 2021 FSA will automatically transfer over to the 2021 funding pool up to $550 after the March 31, 2021 deadline.
Contributions not reimbursed over the $550 carryover will be forfeited.
Questions about your FSA? Contact Esther Scarpello, UNO Benefits Manager, at email@example.com.
How to Use Your FSA
To get reimbursed, dates of service must have been incurred during the calendar year for 2020. Please do not use your card to submit 2020 claims after Dec. 31, 2020. The card can only be used in the current calendar year.
To check your balance and/or submit a claim, please take the following actions:
- Log on to Firefly. For help with user names or passwords, call 402.554.4357.
- Click on the Employee Self Service (ESS) Tab.
- Under the ESS Benefits heading, click the Flexible Spending Account tile.
This will launch your WageWorks account into another window. If you do not see this loading, check your internet settings. The pop-up blocker must be turned off for the account to launch.
