Flexible Spending
Flexible Spending Accounts
The Town of Vienna provides its employees, through Ameriflex, the option of enrolling in two different types of flexible spending accounts, a Medical Spending Account and a Dependent Care Assistance Program.

Medical Spending Account
Employees can make equal pre-tax contributions per pay period to an account used to pay out of pocket medical expenses incurred by the employee and/or their immediate family members during the calendar year, thereby exempting these expenses from tax. As of January 1, 2015 the maximum contribution cannot exceed $2,550 in a calendar year.

Participants receive a debit card for use at their time of service or can submit claim forms for reimbursement. The plan year runs from January 1 through December 31, so all expenses should be incurred during that time frame. Employees may rollover up to $500 of any unused health FSA funds at the end of the plan year. 

Dependent Care Assistance Program
Employees can make equal pre-tax contributions per pay period to an account used to pay dependent care expenses incurred by the employee during the calendar year for child(ren) under the age of 13 and/or a disabled family member. The maximum contributions cannot exceed $5,000 per calendar year. Contributions to the Dependent Care Assistance Program are done in lieu of taking the Dependent Child Care Credit on your income tax return. Proof of expenses must be submitted for services rendered and received by the account administrator within 90 days after the end of the calendar year or the employee forfeits the balance of the account.
