I am paid semi-monthly. Would my December 31 deduction apply to this year’s flexible spending account, or next year’s?

Employee contribution deductions are applied to the plan year in which they are deducted from your paycheck.

Example:


If the contribution is deducted from the paycheck issued on December 31,2018, then the contribution is posted to the 2018 plan year account.
