Coverage

All non-temporary St. Louis County employees are eligible to enroll in flexible spending after one full calendar month of employment.

Each year you will choose to participate in St. Louis County's Flexible Spending Plan.   The program could produce real tax savings to you, but it does require that you plan for any anticipated expenses for the entire plan year.  Once the Plan Year begins, you may not make any changes to either the allocation of monies or accounts without a qualifying family status change event.   Your choices and the amounts you allocate to them will depend solely on the needs and expenses of you and your family.  All unclaimed contributions will be forfeited.   A grace period will occur each year between January 1 and March 15th.  Expenses incurred during the grace period will first be reimbursed with any unclaimed flex funds from the prior year and then reimbursed with any current year flex funds.
