FSA/HRA Deadline: December 31st
The end of the year is quickly approaching – it’s time to spend your unused Flexible Spending and/or Health Reimbursement Account funds. Need help spending down your remaining balance?

The FSA plan has a rollover provision, with a minimum $75 to a maximum of $500 rolling over to 2018. Please be mindful that any unused balance under or over the allotted amount will be forfeited. For example, if you have $700 remaining in your FSA at the end of the year, only $500 will roll over to the next plan year. If you don’t spend the remaining $200 or claim the amount by the end of your run-out period, those funds will be forfeited. The HRA plan does not include a rollover provision; unused funds will be forfeited.

Emergency Travel Assistance
Have a vacation coming up soon or planning on traveling during the holidays?
