Flexible Spending Accounts: It’s Time to Check Your Calendar Year Progress!

Have you logged in to your flex spending portal lately?  Here are some good reasons why you should:

  • All correspondence regarding your flex account is posted virtually to your portal. If you log in, you can review your account, including any requests for substantiation.  Please pay particular attention to notifications warning that your Benny card may be suspended if you fail to substantiate your claims in a timely manner;
  • You will be able to monitor the status of claims and anticipated reimbursements;
  • You can electronically upload scanned or photographed provider invoices or Explanations of Benefits for claims substantiation;
  • You can stay up-to-date on your year-to-date usage and fund availability;
  • You can set-up direct deposit to your bank account for reimbursement requests;
  • You can access useful information and tips.

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact myCafeteriaPlan Customer Service Department at 1-800-865-6543.

As you are aware, flexible spending account rules require that a participant’s 2017 election may only be used for dates of service in 2017.  Unused funds will be subject to forfeiture.* The last quarter of 2017 is quickly approaching, so please take some time to log in to your flexible spending account portal and monitor your progress.

(*Health FSAs allow up to $500 of unused funds to rollover to the next calendar year.)

Attend the 2017 MiddAction Fair!

The MiddAction Fair will be hosted on Tuesday, September 19 from 6-7:30 pm in Wilson Hall of the McCullough Student Center.

Representatives from over 50 community partners and student service organizations will be in attendance. These groups will offer you the opportunity to become involved with local activism, volunteering, social justice, and service-learning activities.

This event will provide opportunities to connect with community partners related to your curriculum or research, become more engaged within Addison County, and network with civic-minded colleagues and students.

Program areas represented will include education, youth mentoring, environment, emergency services, public health, food security, housing support, and poverty alleviation.

In an effort to increase student attendance at the 2017 MiddAction Fair, we are hopeful faculty members will join the CCE in encouraging their students to visit this event as a way to connect their academic interests with opportunities in the local community.

Please contact Miller Thornton, AmeriCorps VISTA for the Center for Community Engagement, with questions at mthornton@middlebury.edu or (802)-443-5512.

We look forward to seeing you there!
