What is an FSA/TRA?


Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Transportation Reimbursement Accounts (TRA) allow you to use pre-tax dollars to pay for certain dependent care, health care, and transportation expenses that you would normally pay for with after-tax dollars. This can mean a significant tax savings on qualified expenses.


You have 30 days from the date you begin working to enroll in this plan, or you may enroll during the annual open enrollment period held in December. To continue participation, you must re-enroll each year.


For FSA/TRA new hire enrollment, within 30 days of hire, log into Employee Self Service in PeopleSoft, select the Benefit Details tile and complete the steps under Benefits Enrollment. For FSA qualifying event changes mid-year, you will create a life event under the Benefit Details tile and for TRA qualifying event changes mid-year, you will need to complete a paper form
