Use this worksheet to decide how much to set aside each pay period for health and dependent care expenses.

            Refer to the list of eligible health care expenses. However, this list doesnot completely cover all of the IRS
            guidelines. Therefore,if you are unsure if an expense is eligible, please refer to IRS Publication 502 or call

            of the plan year are forfeited.

            Once you designate a contribution amount, you cannot change it or stop making contributions until the next
            year's enrollment, except as specified in your plan.
