Attachment A

CY2020 Flexible Spending Account Limits

Health care spending account limit increased to $2,700 for CY2020

Catastrophic Leave Policy Update

The Catastrophic Leave Policy was reviewed by Faculty Senate and Staff Council at their September meetings. As a result, it was recommended that the eligibility criteria be revised to include faculty and staff in 50% or greater regular positions. No longer, would there be a requirement of earning vacation accruals to be a recipient of catastrophic leave. This recommendation positively affects 9-month faculty and 9-month staff in regular positions who accrue sick leave only. The next step is a Board of Regent request to revise the Board Policy on Catastrophic Leave.
