Flexible Spending Accounts
Carroll County Government allows employees to set aside pre-tax dollars in Flexible Spending Accounts which operate under Section 125 of the Internal Revenue Code. Flexible Spending Accounts are administered through American Fidelity to give you the freedom of 24/7 access to your reimbursement accounts plus the ability to use a Benefits Debit Card at most points of service.
The Health Care Flexible Spending Account allows a pre-tax payroll deduction which is deposited into an account to pay for eligible medical expenses not covered by insurance.
A Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account allows you to reimburse yourself with pre-tax funds deducted from your paycheck for costs associated with care for children under the age of 13, or an adult-dependent incapable of self-care, during the plan year.
In addition to the Flexible Spending Accounts, American Fidelity also offers supplemental insurance that can be paid through biweekly payroll deductions.
