The Town offers a pre-tax Flexible Spending Plan through Crosby Benefit Systems, Inc. This plan is authorized by the Internal Revenue Service and complies with their regulations which allow to deduct, on a calendar year basis, up to $2,500 for medical expenses not covered by health or dental insurance and/or up to $5,000 for dependent care. Per the IRS, any funds that you have deducted and do not use by the end of the calendar year are forfeited so it is important that you plan carefully. If you join the plan, you will be charged an administration fee of $6.25 per month by Crosby Benefit Systems which will be deducted from your pay check. For employees who are currently in the plan, Crosby will automatically send re-enrollment forms to you. For those not currently enrolled who wish to join, may contact the Human Resources Department for forms during the open enrollment period or may join/re-enroll on line at: http://www.crosbybenefits.com
The IRS requires that you sign up for this plan each year and this will continue to be done during the month of December to be effective for January 1st.
If you join on line, please make a copy of your application and send one to Human Resources, Town Hall, 455 Concord Ave., MA 02478. This will ensure that your deductions are processed through payroll as of January.
