FSAs do not automatically renew from year to year; employees must re-enroll each year to continue participation even if they do not want the deduction amount to change.

Library turnstiles

A new security measure aimed at providing better protection for UD students, faculty and staff and members of the larger community who use the Morris Library is now active.

Service awards

UD's Office of Human Resources will host the 2016 Service Awards luncheon and dinner events to recognize employees with five to 45 years of service as well as recent retirees.

Flexible Spending Accounts are voluntary accounts through which UD employees can set aside pretax dollars to cover out-of-pocket health care and day care expenses. 

The maximum annual amount that can be contributed is now $2,500 per employee for the Health Care Account and $5,000 per family for the Dependent Day Care Account. (This is a provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).) Visit the Office of Human Resources website for details about FSAs. 

The Human Resources staff is available to help with any questions about FSA enrollment. Employees can reach a benefits representative by emailing hrhelp@udel.edu.
