A deduction for Health Care, Dependent Care, and/or Transportation Spending Accounts contributions cannot be taken and no contribution will be made in any pay period in which your compensation after taxes, adjustments and other Plan contributions does not cover the full deduction amount you elected during Annual Benefits Enrollment or as a result of a subsequent Qualified Status Change.
During enrollment, you decide how much to contribute. Contributions to the Health Care Spending Account are made on a before-tax basis. For 2022, you can contribute between $240 and $2,850. Any contributions you make will be deducted from your pay in equal installments throughout the year.
If you begin contributing during the year (as a newly eligible employee or if you have a Qualified Status Change), the maximum contribution you can make is $2,850, which will be taken in equal installments over the remaining pay periods for that year.
