With 2017 winding up, now is the time to make sure to not leave any money in your flexible spending account (FSA). Nearly 29 million U.S. workers have one, and many are unaware that money left unspent in it can be forfeited. If you are unsure whether you have one or not, check with your company.
Those with FSAs have through 11:50 pm on December 31, 2017, to use the money in their account, before they risk losing it all. However, given the wide variety of FSA-eligible products and services, you should have no reason to leave money in your account.
