The Flexible Spending Account (FSA) program is available to eligible SLT who are actively at work during the FSA program benefit year of July 1 to June 30.
SLT have the opportunity to allocate new credits on an annual basis just prior to the beginning of the FSA benefit year. The credit allocation is made through the myUCalgary portal during the month of May and is based on the staff member's full-time equivalent (FTE) status as of July 1. Once the allocation process is complete, choices are irrevocable. If no allocation is made, credits are automatically allocated to the Health Spending Account.
