How to discover your Flexible Spending Account deadlines
If you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), then you're likely aware that there are certain deadlines by which you can use the funds you set aside. These deadlines are pretty strict, but they depend on how your plan is structured. Some plans also offer extensions for which you can use your account - known as grace periods. You can find out more about grace periods in the posts below.

We do not have access to your FSA information (that includes your account balance or claims details) - we are merely a retailer of FSA eligible products. Our site was created to make it simple for FSA holders to shop for the products they need every day and save on these items with an FSA. Though we can't answer any questions about your specific FSA account, you can always ask our customer support team any general questions about FSAs and eligible products/services. We're happy to help you so that you can make the most of your benefit.
