Unemployment Compensation:
You may qualify for unemployment compensation benefits due to the lack of work caused by the Coronavirus. Eligibility will be determined by Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry, Office of Unemployment Compensation Benefits. Information about eligibility for benefits and filing claims is available online at www.uc.pa.gov. 
 
If you are receiving your regular pay you will not be entitled to also receive unemployment benefits.  We ask that you avoid filing frivolous claims.  
Flex Spending Account:
The federal government expanded the products that you may purchase with your FSA.  Over the Counter (OTC) medications and menstrual products may be purchased with the FSA.
 
The Coronavirus epidemic constitutes a life-event for purposes of changing contributions to FSA, including Dependant/Day Care accounts.
