Don't Lose Remaining 2017 FSA Funds! FSA Grace Period will run January 1, 2018 - March 15, 2018.
The 2017 Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Grace Period will run January 1, 2018 - March 15, 2018. This means that if you are an active participant as of December 31, 2017 for the 2017 FSA Plan Year, you may continue to incur expenses through March 15, 2018 in order to use any remaining funds in the 2017 FSA Plan Year.
Wondering how to spend those dollars wisely? There are thousands of over-the-counter (OTC) health care products eligible under Health Care FSAs! Items include Band-Aids, sunscreen, contact lens supplies, first aid kits, insulin and diabetic supplies, OTC reading glasses and cleaning tissues, thermometers and many more! To learn more about these products, visit the FSA Store and shop thousands of eligible items.
Remember the deadline to submit claims is April 15, 2018 for ALL allowable expenses incurred during the 2017 Plan Year and the accompanying Grace Period. After April 15, 2018, accounts will be closed and any balance remaining will be forfeited to the State of Delaware in accordance with federal regulations.
