To FSA or not to FSA
November 17, 2011
Open Enrollment…. the time where you question EVERYTHING for no good reason.
I’m kind of set with all my benefit stuff but I have been thinking about the Flexible Spending Plan. I have thought about it on and off for a long time but I’ve never signed up.
So tonight I took all the information and I read it and I thought…. that sounds like a good idea. I could pay for some dental stuff or new prescription sunglasses.
Well, not so much. See I did the math on the pre-tax savings and I really didn’t save that much money. Maybe $15 a month max. So why bother?
I’m sure that if I made a different amount of money, if I was in a different place in the tax brackets then the FSA would be a boon. But it’s not… so that’s one less thing for me to worry about.
