If you are enrolled in the Core or Voluntary Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) benefit through NCFlex, you also have a travel assistance benefit available at no cost. This benefit offers you pre-trip information including up-to-date travel information such as immunization requirements, emergency personal services, and emergency transportation services when traveling more than 100 miles away from home.

View this flyer for more information about the Voya Travel Assistance benefit. There is also a section designed to be cut out and kept on hand during travel, in case of emergency.
Dependent Day Care Qualifying Life Events

If your situation with dependent day care changes and you need to adjust your contributions, you may be eligible to use the life event reason "Day care change" in the Benefits Enrollment System to make changes to your Dependent Day Care Flexible Spending Account (DDCFSA).

Some situations that may qualify:
  • Child care/adult daycare stops
  • Child care/adult daycare starts (such as summer camp or when a parent goes back to work after the birth of a child)
  • Child care/adult daycare costs change (such as a child starts kindergarten and before and/or after-school care is less than full-time daycare or camp)
  • Your spouse stops working

This life event is intended to allow changes to the DDCFSA as life happens, to avoid over or under contributing into the plan. You have 30 days from the date of an event to make changes to your account. The annual maximum still remains $5,000 per household.

To make changes, log into the Benefits Enrollment Platform* or contact Benefitfocus at 1-855-859-0966. The "reason for change" would be "Day care change". Documentation is required for life events. For a daycare change, provide written proof from the dependent daycare provider stating the change in cost or enrollment status OR complete the NCFlex DDCFSA Qualifying Life Event Form.

To learn more about the plan and how to file a claim, visit our FSA Documents page. Email ncflex@nc.gov with any questions.

*When visiting the Benefits Enrollment page, click the button for your enrollment system. If your employer is not listed, select the "eBenefits" button or contact your HR representative for assistance.
