Savings Calculator

The Savings Calculator will help you:

  • Itemize unreimbursed health and dependent care expenses
  • Estimate your annual increase in spendable income if you should choose to participate in the Flexible Spending Account plan

When calculating your annual election amount, keep in mind that the TexFlex health care account and day care account each have a $12 annual administrative fee starting September 1, 2010.
