Why use a Flexible Spending Account,FSA?

An FSA allows you to put aside tax free dollars to use for eligible expenses throughout the year. You must elect a contribution at open enrollment each year. The amount elected is available September 1 and the pre-tax deductions are made over 12 months (September through August)

Remember, if any unused funds remain at the end of the plan year, you may lose that money.
Expenses for services must be received during the current plan year. You will then have 90 days to submit receipts for reimbursement after the plan year.
