The grace period for spending down the 2010 funds in your flexible-spending account is up on March 15.
Remember, whether you allocated $200 or $2,000 to be saved in your FSA last year, those are use-it-or-lose-it funds.
Not every company provides a grace period. If yours does, you have until Tuesday to spend that pre-tax money. (Also, be sure check what your company’s deadline is for filing FSA expenses.)
The good news: Thanks to changes in healthcare legislation, you can use your FSA money for a much wider range of products and services.
There’s even a new FSAstore online, that specializes in products that now qualify under flexible-spending account rules.
