Dependent Daycare Account - Leaves and Termination

Leave of Absence

If you take a leave of absence, deductions will continue as long as you receive a paycheck. If you return to work before the end of the calendar year, payroll deductions will resume with the first full pay period after you return. At that point, the amount of your year-to-date contributions will be subtracted from your authorized annual amount, and the difference will be deducted from your remaining pay checks in equal installments through year end.

You may continue to file claims for employment-related dependent daycare expenses incurred through the end of the claim period, provided funds permit. You may elect to have the deductions for the period of your unpaid leave taken on a pre-tax basis from the last paycheck you receive prior to your leave, provided your gross pay is large enough. Contact Employee Benefits at least two weeks prior to the date of your last paycheck to make this arrangement.

Termination, Retirement, or Layoff

If you terminate your employment, retire, or are laid off from the University, your contributions will end with your last paycheck. You may, however, continue to file claims for employment-related dependent daycare expenses incurred through the end of the claim period, provided funds permit.

You may elect to have the deductions for the balance of the calendar year taken on a pre-tax basis from your last paycheck, provided your gross pay is large enough. Contact Employee Benefits at least two weeks prior to the date of your last paycheck to make this arrangement.
