Deadline Extension for HSA and DTA Claims

With the COVID-19 situation, we have extended the deadline to submit Health Spending Account and Training & Development Allowance claims to April 30, 2020.  You will be able to submit your expenses incurred in the 2019/2020 fiscal (April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020) up until April 30, 2020.

If you have funds in the Health Spending Account on April 30, 2020 from fiscal year 2019/2020, they will be carried forward for one more fiscal year, but expenses incurred in this fiscal year must now be submitted by April 30, 2020.

Training & Development funds cannot be carried forward so claims must be submitted by the extension date of April 30, 2020.

Eligible employees have received a link to the 2020/2021 Health Spending Account Funds Designation Form which must be submitted to Human Resources by April 30, 2020. The online HSA Funds Designation form is available on the HR website, in Compensation & Benefits, if you did not receive the link by email.  https://www.ufv.ca/hr/compensation-benefits/health-spending-account/

This form authorizes us to direct your HSA funds in the manner of your choice:

  • remain in the fund for use towards eligible expenses, or
  • designate some or all of the funds to your RRSP

Employees can log in to myUFV to see their HSA and DTA balances.  Please contact Debbie Dyck at local 4653 or Debbie.Dyck@ufv.ca if you have any questions.
