If I separate but return to work for another government agency, will my FSA be reinstated?
Your previous election will be reinstated as long as you return to work for an agency that is covered under FSAFEDS within 60 days of your separation and before the end of the same benefit period. You may not change the amount of your election. FSAFEDS will recalculate your allotments to ensure you meet your annual election.
If you return after 60 days of your separation within the same benefit period, you will have an opportunity to make a new election. Please note: Any expenses you incurred during the time in which you were not an active employee will not be eligible for reimbursement.
It is your responsibility to notify FSAFEDS if you are leaving, transferring, or re-joining a federal agency that participates in FSAFEDS. Please contact FSAFEDS as soon as possible at 877-FSAFEDS (372-3337), (TTY: 866-353-8058), Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Eastern Time. Provide us with this information to ensure a seamless transition.
Please note: The following agencies offer their own FSA program so their employees are not eligible to enroll in FSAFEDS. Please contact your HR Department for more information if you are an employee of one of these agencies.
