Flexible Spending Accounts

All benefit-eligible employees (Certificated 50% or greater, Classified 4hrs per day or greater) are eligible to participate in the District's Flexible Spending Account (FSA) programs.

General Info

Ameriflex administers the District's Section 125 Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). FSAs are great tools to help with common medical expenses not covered by your insurance, and/or dependent day care expenses. You may elect a portion of your salary to be deducted on a pre-tax basis to use for reimbursement of qualified expenses throughout the year. SVUSD offers two FSAs:

  • Health Flexible Spending Account
  • Dependent Day Care Flexible Spending Account

Enrolled participants may set up online accounts to download claim forms, check status and upload claims at www.myameriflex.com. To enroll in the online account, please use your SSN without dashes in the "Employee ID" section, and enter AMFSADBAC in the "Employer ID" section. If you prefer to submit a claim via the paper claim form, please contact the Benefits Department for the appropriate documents.

Plan Details

Medical FSA:

Up to a max of $2,600 can be contributed to the medical FSA per calendar year. Deductions will be taken out of paychecks for the period of December (this check is paid in January) through June. Ameriflex will provide reimbursement for eligible medical expenses that surpass the employee's deductions to date, as long is it is still within the annual contribution amount. Participants may be required to provide documentation and/or substantiate claims submitted. Ameriflex may deny reimbursement if a claim is not shown to be an eligible expense. Eligible expenses typically include deductibles, copayments, and other approved medical costs. Up to $500 of unused funds can be rolled over to the next calendar year. Any unused funds beyond $500 will be forfeited.

Dependent Daycare FSA:

Up to a max of $5,000 can be contributed to the dependent daycare FSA per calendar year. Deductions will be taken out of paychecks for the period of December (this check is paid in January) through June, and September through November. Ameriflex will only provide reimbursement for eligible daycare expenses up to the amount that has been deducted from the employee's paycheck at that time. Participants may be required to provide documentation and/or substantiate claims submitted. Ameriflex may deny reimbursement if a claim is not shown to be an eligible expense. Eligible expenses typically include enrollment fees for daycare centers, but do NOT include payment to a family member who may be assisting with daycare services. Up to $500 of unused funds can be rolled over to the next calendar year. Any unused funds beyond $500 will be forfeited.
