End of the Day: 10/13/2008

A very quiet day – and no wonder.  Not many people left aboard the S.S. Heller Ehrman I guess.  I think having today as a holiday didn’t help much either – we were hoping to hear about your experiences with unemployment offices, etc.

Not much of a recap but now that the network of those privy to emails and information has shrunk, I am wondering if someone can confirm this issue:

– if you had money sitting in your Flexible Spending accounts, basically you can kiss it goodbye.  I am wondering if this is for valid expenses you had during your employment this year but for which you haven’t yet handed in receipts.  Or is it just all gone due to your termination? 

I’d appreciate any information along these lines especially if the much touted FAQ is updated and disseminated via email.

For today’s “cheesy 80s music” entertainment as one of our devoted followers so aptly put it, I present on the Lido Deck, a-ha with Take On Me.  Now most of you know this music video, it having even been spoofed in an episode of Family Guy.  But this production by DustFilms is quite funny and sort of “splains” what is actually going on.  I wish someone could do that for me in terms of the S.S. Heller Ehrman.

    You can still be reimbursed for Flex spending claims for which the date of service was prior to your termination date. Just use the “Pay Me Back” form on Wage Works’ website. But you cannot be reimbursed for dates of service after your termination date. This rule is not specific to Heller–it applies regardless of why you leave your employment (whether you were fired, the firm dissolved, or you left of your own volition).

    I applied for unemployment in DC online today (10/14), without incident. Hopefully I get approved!
