2. FSA expenses need to be incurred by end of year
Employees with unused funds in their 2007 health care or dependent flexible spending account need to submit their receipts and reimbursement forms to EBC, Marquette’s third-party FSA administrator, by March 31, 2008. Participating employees have a 90-day run-out period to submit claims for expenses they incurred in 2007. Expenses must have been incurred in calendar 2007 to be reimbursed from this year’s balance.
Employees who re-enrolled in the health care FSA for 2008 also get a 2 1/2 month grace period as an extension to the 2007 plan year, giving participants additional time (through March 15, 2008) to incur eligible expenses and get reimbursements from the funds they contributed in 2007. EBC will automatically verify this for employees. Any FSA funds from the 2007 calendar year not used by March 15, 2008, are forfeited.
3. Simmons religious commitment grants available
Proposals for the 2008-2009 Edward D. Simmons Religious Commitment Fund are being accepted for projects and events that enhance Marquette’s institutional religious commitment. New guidelines are posted online.
Available to Marquette staff, faculty and administrators, the fund provides modest grants ($500 to $2,500) to finance small projects or provide seed money for programs or events that deepen the religious nature of Marquette University.
The deadline for proposals is Jan. 31, 2008.
4. Campus door access upgrade scheduled for Jan. 2
The Marquette door access software using MU ID card swipes will be upgraded Jan. 2, 2008. Although no problems are anticipated for building or room access, anyone having difficulty accessing a building or room should contact Public Safety at 8-6800.
