Reminder: Closing out your 2016 Flexible Spending Accounts

If you participated in a flexible spending account in 2016 and still have a remaining balance, you have until March 15, 2017 to seek reimbursement for dates of service which occurred in 2016.  While at this point in time you can no longer use your 2016 benefits debit card for claims, you may file your claims by using a paper claim form and submitting it via mail, fax or via electronic upload.  Here is a link to the 2016 CBA FSA claim form: http://www.middlebury.edu/media/view/170601/original/CBA_Blue_Flex_Claim_Form.pdf

Here is a link to the site for uploading your 2016 FSA claims: https://secure.cbabluevt.com/electronic-submission.aspx?app=reimbursement

After March 15th, remaining 2016 Health FSA balances, up to a maximum of $500 will be rolled over to your 2017 Health FSA account.  The rollovers are expected to be credited to employees accounts with MyCafeteriaPlan in April.   If an employee participated in the flex spending accounts in 2016, but did not enroll in 2017, any rollover funds available to them will result in a new account being opened for them at MyCafeteriaPlan, and debit cards issued.

Academic Roundtable – Fake News, Alternative Facts, and the Toxic Web: Strategies for Understanding and Coping with a Changing Media Universe

Please join us on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 12:15 pm in the CTLR located in the Davis Family Library, Suite 225.

We live now in a world where the traditional media has been supplanted by a much more complicated set of media outlets and platforms. How do we understand this new reality? What sorts of strategies might we use to keep ourselves informed? What sorts of media literacies must we cultivate in ourselves and in our students ?

Join us for a panel discussion led by Amy Collier (Office of Digital Learning), Sue Halpern (EAM), Terry Simpkins (Library), and Jason Mittell (FMMC)

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP for lunch by 4 pm on Friday, March 10, 2017.

The Academic Roundtable is co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching, Learning, & Research
