can be used for adult or child day care expenses. The maximum annual
contribution for 2014 is $5,000 per household ($2,500 if married and
New Flexible Spending Account Vendor!
USF is now working with a new Flexible Spending Account (FSA) vendor in order to provide better participant services, improved online access, and smart phone applications.

Existing "Benny" FSA debit cards from the previous vendor, Benesyst, were deactivated on July 18, 2014. Benesyst is no longer accepting paper claim forms. All FSA claims for medical and dependent care should now be submitted to CBA via Fax at (916) 303-7083 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
