Flexible Spending Accounts

Flexible Spending Accounts


CrossCountry Mortgage’s employee benefit package allows employees to participate in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA). The FSA is administered through PNC Bank. An FSA is a pre-taxed benefit allowable under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 125. The plan allows eligible employees to set aside a specific pretax dollar amount for medical, dental, vision, orthodontia, and dependent care expenses. If you have predictable out-of-pocket expenses, you may want to consider opening an FSA. Employees are eligible to participate in an FSA on the 1st following 30 days from their date of hire.

Types of FSA’s:

Medical FSA
