Refinery29 recently published a post regarding how to contribute to Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)and how to maximize an FSA plan. As the end of year deadline for many FSA account holders approaches,now is a good moment to check in on FSA accounts and make sure the remaining dollars are used by December 31. If you're not sure whether you have the December deadline, it's best to reach out to the FSA administrator for your plan, or ask HR about it, too. Your plan could have a deadline extension, as well, but no plan is entirely the same and people could have different spending deadlines, so it's best to ask about it with the FSA administrator, and read the Summary Plan Description.
According to the article writer, "I've been employed full-time for more than a decade, and yet I still don't totally understand what a flexible spending account (FSA) is and why I should have one. I've written before about how I'm a good saver, but I'm not particularly mindful about money. And, like so many people, I'm crazy busy all the time — and thinking about health care costs is not on the top of my list of ways to spend my free time. But it's the season of open enrollment, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one wondering if I should be setting aside money each month in an FSA."
