Dear Benefits Eligible Employee:
Annual Enrollment for the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) for 2014 will be ending December 9, 2013. Enrollment forms for the 2014 plan year are available for download on the NMSU Benefit Services website under the 2014 Plan Year section. All forms are due in Benefit Services no later than December 9, 2013 at 5:00 pm. Forms will be accepted in Hadley Hall room 17, via fax at 575-646-2806 or email at email@example.com. Please note that late forms will not be processed.
An SHDR Benefit Access VISA®Debit Card will be available to participants. There is a $10 fee that will be charged to the participant’s FSA account for the first two cards issued, and a $5 fee charged for any requested replacement cards. Information on the debit card program is available on the NMSU Benefit Services website at http://benefits.nmsu.edu/insurance/fsa/.
If you have any questions regarding the flexible spending account, please contact Benefit Services at 575-646-8000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please keep in mind that the 2013 plan year will end December 31, 2013. Only charges incurred during the 2013 plan year are eligible for reimbursement for 2013. The last day to submit claims for 2013 will be March 31, 2014. At that time, all remaining balances in excess of $500 will be forfeited. Balances of $500 or less will carry over to the next plan year. If you are unsure if you have a balance remaining, please contact Stanley, Hunt, Dupree and Rhine at 800-768-4873 or log on to your personal account at http://www.shdr.com/shdr/sponsors-participants/flexible-benefits/. For your convenience, 2013 claim forms are available on the NMSU Benefit Services website under the 2013 Plan Year section. Claims can be mailed, faxed or e-mailed to Stanley, Hunt, Dupree and Rhine.
If you already have an SHDR Benefit Access VISA®Debit Card, you will retain that card for use during the 2014 plan year. The $10 fee for the card is an annual fee and will be charged to your 2014 account. A $5 fee will be charged for any requested replacement cards. Please remember that funds for 2014 will not be available until late January.
