IMPORTANT REMINDER ABOUT CHANGES
FOR THE 2023 PLAN YEAR

There will be changes to the eligible carryover amounts going into the 2023 plan year. Now is the time to think about using your pre-tax funds.

  • The DCEA will not have a carryover going into 2023. All funds in your 2022 DCEA must be used for expenses this year or they will be forfeited.
  • The MDEA allowed carryover amount will be $570 going into 2023. Any remaining balance in the MDEA above this amount will not carryover and will be forfeited. A new MDEA election of at least $100 will also be required to qualify for the carryover.

All 2022 expenses must be submitted by the filing deadline of February 28, 2023. Late submissions are not accepted.
