FSA: medical & limited purpose (state and higher ed employees only)  

After enrolling in a flexible spending account (FSA or L-FSA) either in Edison (state employees) or with your HR rep (higher education), PayFlex will mail you a debit card. Your full FSA and L-FSA contribution is available for use after you enroll. Please note, if you are enrolled in the dependent care FSA (DC-FSA), you may not use the debit card to pay for those expenses, and you can only spend what you have contributed to your dependent care account.

New users and higher education employees previously enrolled can login at PayFlex to register and set up their online account/profile.
