Flexible Benefits

What is a Flexible Spending Account?
A Flexible Spending Account allows you to set aside money on a pre-tax basis to pay for eligible healthcare and/or dependent day care expenses.


How Do I Enroll for 2017?
The enrollment period for the 2017 Medical and Dependent Care Spending Accounts is from October 1st, 2016, to October 31st, 2016.  Because the University of Tennessee joined the State of Tennessee Flexible Benefits program for 2017, you need create a new account for 2017 enrollment.  Please follow the instructions listed below in the guide to enrolling online.



How do I use the PayFlex Card to pay for eligible expenses?
The PayFlex Card provides a simple way to spend the money in your PayFlex account.  Is is similar to a debit card since it electronically accesses the money loaded onto the card when used to pay for eligible expenses.
