Flexible Spending Accounts

Withhold pre-taxed dollars from your paycheck to pay for health related expenses and dependent care expenses.  The new annual contribution limits are:
  • $5,000 dependent care account
  • $2,650 medical spending account
*You must re-enroll in this plan each year.

Enrollment Dates


Open enrollment for flexible spending accounts is in May for the plan July 1st  - June 30th.  Employees will receive advanced notification with the dates of open enrollment period. 

If interested, employees must enroll in a flexible spending account during open enrollment – unless you’re new to the Town of Canton / Canton Public Schools or experiences a change in family status.  Please contact your Human Resources Administrator if you think you have a change in family status throughout the year that may meet the criteria of a qualifying event.
