Sounds to me like you need to sit down with someone in HR and find out exactly how your company's FSA works.

Woohoohoo! Sorry! *gasp* Got to wipe the tears from my eyes from laughing so hard at that one! The HR people don't have a clue. They went round and round with my husband trying to get him to sign up for short term disability. No, no, says my husband, I've already got it.

Yes, yes, says they, and you need to pay for it.

No, no, it's part of my salaried benefits package.

What? You're salaried? Oh.

We couldn't even get the correct forms to sign up for the FSA until after the open enrollment ended. We were given the wrong forms to start with, and then, they didn't know how to use the new forms.


We'll call the FSA company Monday, but I don't know if it will do any good. :(
