1.0 HRCI & SHRM CE Credits
Medical and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (“FSAs”) have been around for several years and they are still widely used by employers of various sizes. Because of their long history and wide-use, sponsors of FSAs tend to overlook various legal pitfalls that may arise in the administration of FSAs. This webinar will provide an overview of Medical and Dependent Care FSAs, an explanation of the factors that employers should consider when adopting FSAs, and identification of the specific issues that can make the proper administration of FSAs challenging.
Tripp will present for 60 minutes regarding the above topic. The remainder of the time will be devoted to Q&A and information regarding BASIC FSA Administration.
BASIC’s webinar is approved for 1.0 HRCI and 1 SHRM-CP credits for advanced professional credentials for HR professionals worldwide. Credits are only available for live attendance.
