- You must submit your eligible flexible spending account claims to Optum no later than 90 days following your last day of employment for expenses prior to your separation date from Georgia Tech in order to qualify for reimbursement.
- If you are enrolled in the Health Savings Account and have a remaining balance in your account, you may continue to use your remaining HSA funds for qualifying expenses until your funds are exhausted. Your funds do not expire.
- Your basic and supplemental life and AD&D benefits end on your last day of employment, as do your short- and long-term disability benefits. Please see the applicable continuation options for life insurance below.
