FSA Open Enrollment: Open Nov. 6 – 22

By msequeira

Open Enrollment for UNM’s Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) begins Wednesday, Nov. 6.  The UNM Benefits Department needs assistance from your department in reaching out to employees who are:

  • working in a remote location with no computer access
  • on a leave status
  • on a sabbatical
  • taking extended time away from work

If you currently have or will have employees in the categories listed above, please let them know about FSA Open Enrollment. 

If employees want to enroll in an FSA for the Shortened 2020 Plan Year but will be unable to complete the Open Enrollment process between Nov. 6 and Nov. 22, they must contact HR Service Center at 505-277-myHR (6947) prior to Nov. 22 to discuss their options.  Enrollments may not be made after Nov. 22 unless there is a Qualifying Change of Status event. Late enrollments are not permitted for this IRS tax-exempt benefit.

FSA Open Enrollment is the opportunity for benefits-eligible employees to enroll in an FSA for the Shortened 2020 FSA Plan Year (January 1- June 30, 2020).  UNM offers two FSA options: a Health Care FSA and/or a Dependent Care FSA.

The online enrollment will be available to employees via LoboWeb from 8:00 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6 to 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22.

Visit the Human Resources website FSA Open Enrollment page and the FSA webpage for more details.
