MMC Benefits Handbook
Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account
If You No Longer Satisfy the Plan's Eligibility Requirements
Your before-tax contributions to the DCFSA will end on the date you no longer satisfy the plan's eligibility requirements. You may receive reimbursements up to the remaining balance in your account for expenses incurred before the date you no longer satisfied the plan's eligibility requirements.
If You Leave and Are Rehired
If you leave salaried employment and are rehired as a salaried employee within 30 days in the same calendar year, your participation will be reinstated automatically with the same annual election in effect before you left.
If You Die
Your before-tax contributions will end on the day of your death. Your family can continue receiving reimbursement from the plan for expenses incurred until your date of death. Your expenses may be reimbursed up to the contributions remaining in your account.
If You Discontinue Contributions While in Active Service
If you discontinue contributions to the plan due to a change in status, but remain employed by the Company, only expenses incurred before contributions ceased are eligible for reimbursement, and only up to the balance remaining in your account.
If You Become Disabled
Your before-tax contributions will continue while you are receiving Short Term Disability benefits. If you then become eligible for Long Term Disability benefits, your before-tax contributions to your account will cease. You may receive reimbursement up to the remaining balance for eligible expenses incurred prior to the date you are placed on Long Term Disability. Remember, however, that expenses are only reimbursable if they enable you or your spouse to work or look for work or enable your spouse to go to school full-time.
If You Have an Authorized Unpaid Leave of Absence
Your before-tax contributions to the plan will cease on the day you begin leave.
If you return to active employment within the same plan year, your participation will be reinstated automatically with the same annual election in effect before you left.
If the Company Ends the Benefit
While the Company intends to maintain the plans, the Company reserves the right to terminate or amend this plan, in whole or part, at any time and for any reason as it deems advisable, as to any or all employees covered. In fact, as a matter of prudent business planning, the Company periodically evaluates the plans. If the Company terminates the plan, your coverage under the plan ends on the date of termination.
