For the Health Care Spending Account, if you are participating in the Health Care Spending Account when your employment with JPMorgan Chase ends, you will be covered for eligible expenses incurred in the plan year up to the end of the month in which you terminate. You then have until March 31 of the year following your termination from JPMorgan Chase to submit claims for any eligible expenses incurred during the previous year, up to the end of the month in which you terminate. Expenses incurred after the end of the month in which you leave JPMorgan Chase cannot be reimbursed by the JPMorgan Chase Health Care Spending Account unless you choose to continue your Health Care Spending Account participation under COBRA. By electing continuation coverage under COBRA, you may continue your Health Care Spending Account participation through any month up until the end of the year in which your employment ends, if you make after-tax contributions to the account. (Please see "Continuing Coverage Under COBRA" in the Health Care Participation section for more information on COBRA.)
For the Dependent Care Spending Account, if you have a balance remaining in the Dependent Care Spending Account when your employment with JPMorgan Chase ends, you may continue to submit claims against the balance in the account for eligible expenses incurred in the plan year up to your termination date. You then have until March 31 of the year following your termination from JPMorgan Chase to submit claims for any eligible expenses incurred during the previous year, up to your termination date. Expenses incurred after your termination date cannot be reimbursed by the JPMorgan Chase Dependent Care Spending Account. You may not continue to make contributions to the Dependent Care Spending Account after your termination.
For the Transportation Spending Accounts, if you have a balance remaining in the "Pay Me Back" option of the Parking Account when you leave, you may continue to submit claims against the balance in your account for up to 180 days following the end of the benefit month (for example, expenses incurred in January must be claimed by July); otherwise, your Parking Account balance will be forfeited. You may not continue to make contributions to the Transportation Spending Accounts after your termination. If you are planning to leave the company, you should change your contribution amount to zero approximately one month before your departure in order to avoid forfeiting any contributions. The Transportation Spending Accounts, under Section 132 of the Internal Revenue regulations, allow qualified transportation expenses to be excluded from an employee's gross income. Under these regulations, before-tax contributions are non-refundable to the employee under any circumstances including termination of employment.
For the Life and Accident Insurance Plans, if your employment with JPMorgan Chase terminates, active participation in the Business Travel Accident, Basic Life, Supplemental Term Life and AD&D Insurance Plans generally end on the date your employment ends.

You must provide evidence of insurability for the additional coverage amount. If you are already carrying the maximum amount of coverage, you may not increase your coverage.
    • You have two options for Dependent Supplemental Life Insurance:
1. If you elect to port your employee supplemental life insurance, you also have the opportunity to port your dependent supplemental life insurance
2. If you do not elect to port your employee supplemental life coverage but want to continue coverage for your dependents, you must convert your dependent supplemental life insurance to an individual whole life policy
  • For Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance:
    • When you retire from JPMorgan Chase, you may port up to $2 million of your employee AD&D coverage with Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (MetLife) within 31 days of your retirement date.
