Take Advantage of Your FSAFEDS Benefits by December 31, 2021

The 2021 benefit period is almost over. Now is a great time to take inventory of any eligible planned expenses in 2021. New legislation has temporarily changed carryover limits and deadlines for 2021 Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs). Due to the Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA), unlimited carryover is available for the 2021 plan year, but you must re-enroll in a 2022 Health Care Flexible Spending Account (HCFSA) or Limited Expense Health Care FSA (LEX HCFSA) to be eligible for this benefit. If you do not plan on re-enrolling in an HCFSA or LEX HCFSA, be sure to incur any remaining expenses before December 31, 2021. If you are enrolled in a DCFSA, you may continue to incur new eligible expenses until December 31, 2022. Log in to your account at www.fsafeds.com and check your balance today.
