  • Flexible Spending Account (FSA): Contribute pre-tax money on each paycheck for eligible expenses. Healthcare and dependent care FSAs are available with different annual maximums and rollover amounts.
  • Health Savings Account (HSA): Available only to members of a high-deductible health plan. The state contributes pre-tax money to an employee’s account on each paycheck. Employee pre-tax contributions are optional. All funds will roll over from year to year and remain available even after the end of employment.
