Clifton Budd & DeMaria, LLP
Jan. 28, 2015
"The IRS has recently issued Notice 2014-55 which expands the circumstances under which a participant may make a mid-year revocation of his election to participate in an employer sponsored health plan and elect coverage under a plan offered on the Health Insurance Exchange.... The expansion of the modification rules does not apply to elections under flexible spending accounts.... For plan years beginning in 2015, the cap on salary reduction contributions has increased to $2,550.... All cafeteria plans should be reviewed to reflect the Federal recognition of same sex-marriages.... Finally, employers should consider allowing a $500 carry over for a health FSA for contributions that are not reimbursed in the plan year in which deducted (and any applicable grace period)."
