Flexible Spending Account Deadline Extended to March 15

TAMPA, Fla. (Feb. 3, 2009) -- Flexible Spending Accounts have a "use it or lose it" policy, which means you must use any money you contribute to a Medical Reimbursement Account or a Dependent Care Reimbursement Account for expenses incurred or the money will be forfeited.


The State of Florida has added a new "grace period" feature to our FSAs effective 2008. If you contributed to a Flexible Spending Account for Medical or Child Care coverage during 2008, you have until March 15, 2009 to use the money, and until April 15, 2009 to submit your reimbursement requests. Use this form to submit your claims.
