How to use the amount I have allocated to this account?

Obtaining a reimbursement is fast and easy! You can submit your claim online or on the mobile app. You can also use a paper form if you prefer.



Alfred’s tip

The amounts reimbursed through the PSA are taxable benefits (both provincial and federal) in all provinces.

The list seems very comprehensive, and it really is! You can use the PSA to pay for your babysitter, your bus pass, your teen’s athletic gear, your fitness app and so much more. If you have flex dollars left, take advantage of them!
