FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNT
The Conference Board of Pension and Health Benefits is pleased to offer your local church an opportunity to sponsor a Section 125 – Flexible Benefits Plan for clergy and employees of your church. Under Internal Revenue Code Section 125, Flexible Spending Accounts are allowable.
HealthSmart Benefits Solutions is the Flexible Spending Account Administrator for the East Ohio Conference.
All Flex claims need to be submitted directly to HealthSmart. Please use forms below.
The primary advantage is to be able to use pre-tax income to help with the medical, dental, and vision expenses not reimbursable under group health care coverage.
It is important that the local church thoroughly understand this benefit plan and how the plan will be administered. The local church would be the sponsor of the Section 125 Plan.
We encourage the appropriate committees to meet and discuss the plan as soon as possible.
To implement the plan, please open and copy all four files:
Participation in a Section 125 – Flexible Benefits Plan REQUIRES an annual election.
