    If FlexCash enrollment forms are received by the State Controller’s Office by the 10th of the month, the effective date of the plan is the first of the following month. Forms received after the 10th delay the effective date to the first of the second month following appointment.

    Employees are required to reenroll in FlexCash every open enrollment to participate during the following calendar year. The FlexCash Plan is subject to certain enrollment restrictions.

    Enrollment Restrictions

    Once an employee makes an election to participate in either the FlexCash Plan or TAPP, participation cannot be changed or cancelled until the next open enrollment unless there is a change in status event. Employees experiencing a change in status event may change, start, or stop participation by filing the appropriate form within sixty (60) days of the change in status event.

    An employee who is on leave of absence without pay, temporary disability compensation, non-industrial disability leave, industrial disability leave, or other non-pay status may not enroll in either plan while in such status. However, the employee may enroll within sixty (60) days of returning to active status provided that he/she would otherwise have been eligible to enroll during the non-pay status.
