Electronic FSA Claims

Allow for the electronic/e-mail submission of FSA Feds claims and documentation, in addition to the current mailing and faxing options. As more and more receipts can be obtained in an electronic format, or can be easily scanned into an electronic format, along with the FSA Feds claim form already in a fill-able PDF format, there should be an option to e-mail or upload claims and receipts to FSA Feds. This process would ...more »

Student Loan Help!

Allow federal student loan agencies to fax in student loan pay-off information versus mail the pay-off amounts. I started my consolidation process March of 2010—It is June of 2010 and my loan is still not consolidated.

DCP Program

I work for FSA and my idea is about the DCP program. Each year producers have to resign up into the DCP program.

FSAFEDS Credit Card

We currently have to submit a paper application to receive reimbursment for qualified expenses. Why not institute a FSAFED credit card. Many pharmacies now have reporting systems that automatically detect qualified expenses. This will reduce the amount of paper needed to be faxed.

FSA & RMA

The first thing that should be done is that RMA and FSA combine into one agency. Think of the money just that would save. But what really needs to happen is that FSA needs to start selling crop insurance. The money we pay in just premium subsidy's would pay 3 or more times over what the extra cost would be for the county offices to have an added employee that could specialize in just crop insurance. Probably about 15 ...more »
