How FSA's Work

Every dollar contributed to your FSA is made on a before-tax basis. Each pay period. Dartmouth deducts the amount that you elect directly from your “gross” wages. This means that FSA contributions are deducted before federal, state, and FICA taxes.

Your year-end W-2 form from your employer will properly notify all of the government agencies of your participation in the program.

Use the Benny Card to pay for your FSA expenses.

The Sentinel Benny Card offers an added convenience of accessing your FSA funds with our Benny Visa Debit Card. Because it’s a Visa card, you can use it most anywhere. The Benny card is designed to help you:

  • Save money on qualified expenses
  • Reduce paperwork
  • Eliminate the wait for reimbursement
  • Eliminate out-of-pocket expenses and paperwork.
  • Full amount of available funds is automatically loaded onto the card for immediate use.
      • Use your Sentinel Benny® Card to pay for eligible items wherever Visa is accepted
