Do my account dollars expire?
Usually Flex Spending Account dollars must be spent in the same calender year that the money was set aside. Usually this ends on Dec. 31st). Some FSA plans do offer a grace period allowing use of remaining funds into the first quarter of the following year. All unused FSA funds are lost when the coverage period expires.
HSA funds will never expire. The money remains in your account until used. If you don't utilize all of your HSA funds in a given year, the remaining money will roll over into your HSA the following year.
