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:

  • $2,700 medical spending account
  • $5,000 dependent care 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 through 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.
