Brothers and sisters,
The city of Milwaukee is transitioning “sponsors” for the FSA that you may participate in from the traditional “eflexbenefits/TASC” to “Benefits Advantage.” There will be a black out period from November 15th through November 30th. Effective December 1st, all claims must be filed with Benefits Advantage going forward. Everything else is the same in so much as how much can be put aside, carried over and there is NO diminished amount in your current account as a result of the transition and black out period.
You can access the more detailed particulars on the city website on the pull down menu of “Employee Relations” and click on the icon “Benefits 2018” and scroll to “Flexible Spending Accounts.”
If you have any further questions give us a call.

`This update is an appeal to the membership for more donation days. This message is from Brian himself.
It's hard to talk to everyone. Some people are FB people, some call or text, some follow caring bridge, so I'll do my best to update. Today is about a month since my stem cell transplant. I had a PET scan today and saw the doc. Didn't get the news I wanted. The scan showed spots of cancer almost the same as my last scan. So, the high dose chemo and stem cell transplant did not work. At best it kept things in check. So, 4th type of chemo that wasn't successful. On to # 5. Thankfully there's still some options but this is getting pretty old
As you have seen from Brian's update of his treatment he is still going to need some more days donated. He presently has till 9/10 before he runs out of donation days and will be forced to use accrued time off. He is getting close to his maximum allowed time in the donor program of 2080 hours and he is currently allowed (11) additional donation days. If we can find it in our hearts to donate (11)additional days Brian will be at the max allowed donor time. Brian and Shalon appreciate everything we have done for them, including the days already given. Brian is staying positive despite the setbacks he has encountered. There are still treatment options he can pursue and he will continue to battle. Brian also has a blog to post about his progress. You can find that link here.
If you have any questions, please contact me (or Brian - email@example.com) .
