The Flexible Spending Account (FSA) amount is prorating over the full year instead of the remaining pay periods when enrolling mid-year.
Employee (Participant) coverage for the Flexible Spending Account begins on a date during the course of the year (other than January 1).
The amount entered for FSA should pro-rate for the remaining number of pay periods in the year.
In this example, the employee coverage for FSA begins August 1st and the employee is attached to a biweekly payroll cycle. An annual amount of $1800 is entered.
- Calculated monthly defined amount populates at $150 (which is $1800/12) instead of $360 ($1800/5 full remaining months).
