How do FSAs work with Justworks?
If your employer offers an FSA through Justworks you will receive an email notifying you of the new benefit and when you will be able to enroll. Enrollment for an FSA can only take place during the enrollment period, in some cases this timeframe will differ from the open enrollment of your healthcare benefits.
When your enrollment period begins you will be able to enroll directly in Justworks. You can enroll and find more information by logging into Justworks and navigating to the ‘Benefits’ tab on the left-hand side menu.
Then you will be taken to a product details page where you can learn about the benefit and whether it's right for you.
From there you’ll be asked to enroll and set your yearly contribution amount.
After you confirm your enrollment and contribution amount Justworks will take the yearly FSA contribution and divide it by the number of remaining payrolls for the year. This amount will then be automatically deducted from each payroll and sent to your account.
When can I sign-up for an FSA?
Since FSAs run along the calendar year, FSA open enrollment usually occurs about a month or so before the start of the new year. The general open enrollment period is only time to sign-up for an FSA.
Separately from general open enrollment, you can enroll during open enrollment when you are newly joining the company.
Can I sign up later if I don't want to during open enrollment?
If you'd like to participate in your company's FSA, you must sign up during open enrollment.
I've signed up for an FSA, how do I use my funds?
If you signed up for a Healthcare FSA, you can use your BenefitWallet issued debit card or you can pay out of pocket and submit a claim. If you use your BenefitWallet card, then all you need to do is go online to upload the necessary documentation to substantiate the claim.
